More information has come in, so i will revise parts of the preceding post.
From Ashtekar there are several valuable surveys. Here are links to a couple of recent ones that might be useful.

Background Independent Quantum Gravity: A Status Report

What is especially interesting right now is a book Ashtekar is preparing, to be published by World Scientific, called
A Hundred Years of Relativity.

This book has a broad scope covering all of General Relativity, including numerical GR and testing. It will show how Ashtekar sees LQG and allied approaches to quantizing Gen Rel in the wider context. Several chapters of this book are already online as preprints:
