Any good books on JVM Garbage Collection? Not performance hints/tips, but specifically tuning the JVM GC.

You can find more with Google (search for "java garbage collection tuning" for example).

I'm not sure how tuning the GC differes from performance tips and tricks, but maybe that's just me. I have seen some excellent info at IBM.COM as well. Sorry I don't have a link, but it was somewhere under WebSphere tuning; should hold true with or without WebSphere. I'm told the IBM JVM is close enough to Sun's that the advice should apply. I think every new release of the JVM changes the algorithms significantly, so be sure your references match your actual JVM.
