continuing that last post

Also: Introducing Continuations, by Barker (who seems to do a lot of work with Shan, the previous author).
Introduces continuations from the linguistics side of things, again with a bit of focus on quantification. Especially interesting is the note that a continuized NP denotation is "exactly the (extensional version of the) generalized quantifier perspective on entity-denoting NPs like John". The continuation approach includes generalized quantifiers but no longer as a special case, and it also makes other things work (their example is generalized coordination).
