Have you looked at the Async library or Marlow's book?
Neither involve actors but I think many Haskellers, myself included, are
skeptical of actor/agent systems. I've written a fair bit of Clojure and
Scala code and don't much care for the model.
If all you really need is message passing/dispatch, you don't strictly
speaking need actors. Channels, messages, and dataflow might very well be
enough. Perhaps look into functional reactive programming as well?
Cheers, hope this helps.
