here are some to get you going.

Have a look at (in my opinion awful) Wal Schuting's piece in Radical
Philosophy 61, Summer 1992.

Also see, John Shotters book, 'Conversational Realities' it has a chapter
which is basically a reprint of a critique first published in History and
the Human Sciences, what's interesteing about the book though is that
Bhaskar writes an afterword replying to the critique.

Also see Ted Benton's piece in Radical Philosphy (can't remember the year)
and also Chalmers also in radical philsophy (again I can't remember the
year, both of these are basically trying to extend and deepen the critical
realist position). 

Hope this helps
