I'm trying to decide, I want to start game development in Java. I've already finished Head Fire Java 2nd Edition, and I'm ready to move onto the game development part of Java. I've narrowed it down to two books, but if you feel that you know of a book that is just incredible, feel free to comment on it.

So if you have any experience with any of these books, do tell:
~ Killer Game Programming in Java
~ Developing Games in Java

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

As I refereed the Practical Java Game Programming book by Syrus Mesdaghi ..... It teaches Java programmers how to deliver outstanding games and details the specific issues in Java to make game development straightforward and efficient.
