Regarding any other positions and depending on how finely you want to
break it down, there's also:
Instantaneous Creation (Augustine)
Various Gap Theories
Progressive Creationism (e.g., Hugh Ross)
Evolutionary Creationism (Denis Lamoureux, Denis Alexander)
Intermittent Day Theory (Newman & Eckelman)
Analogical Day Theory (Shedd, Delitzsch, Bavinck, C. John Collins)
Visionary (Revelatory) Day Theory (the Wisemans, B. Ramm)
Framework Interpretation (Kline, Irons, Futato, Blocher, Wenham, etc.)
Functional Creation (John Walton)
and at least ten flavors of theistic evolution.

Regarding (unbiased) overviews, there's the Haarsma's "Origins: A
Reformed Look at Creation, Design & Evolution" and Fowler & Kuebler's
"The Evolution Controversy."
