That's a nice book, an excellent intro to Forth.

To dig deeper, there is the Forth-83 standard.

Don't know about the M100, but some years ago I looked at FigForth (by
the Forth Interest Group) -- I think for x86. Nice implementation,
looked to be quite easily portable to other platforms.

There's also ColorForth, a more recent creation by Charles Moore I
believe. Unfortunately it won't boot on my old Dell laptop...
