Lloyd's thesis LOW TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL STIRLING ENGINE FOR POWER GENERATION is a very good read that have tons numerical graphs and charts. One can find the PDFs by Google the title as mentioned.
Another good PDF is by Normani

From Lloyd's paper:

See Alpha engines, 90 degrees is not the best.

I just checked and Camden Miniature Steam Services are offering Vol2 of Rizzo's books as an electronic download for 15 quid:

I bought mine (both vols) as hardback in the early 90s
