Yamaoka Tesshu

Hi,
Ive been reading two books on Yamaoka Tesshu, one written by John Stevens: "Sword of No Sword",
and lately a critical biography on Tesshu by Anatoly Anshin: "The Truth of the Ancient Ways". I find both books fascinating and I feel like reading more on the subject.
(Im an aikidoka so I have no actual experience with traditional japanese sword practice)
It seems that most of what is published on the subject is in japanese. Does anyone know if there is more books, written material available in english on the subject ?

Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Lars
