Don't forget this one, mate:

Wesley Elsberry & Jeffrey Shallit (forthcoming), "Information Theory, Evolutionary Computation, and Dembski's 'Complex Specified Information'", Synthese.

E&S argue that "Dembski's work is riddled with inconsistencies, equivocation, flawed use of mathematics, poor scholarship, and misrepresentation of others'
results. As a result, we believe few if any of Dembski's conclusions can be sustained."
