Another is "Taphonomy: Releasing the Data Locked in the Fossil Record"
P.A. Alison & D.E.G. Briggs (eds). Plenum Press, New York. ISBN: 0-306-43876-3

Published in 1991. It covers quite a lot of ground and even panders to
vertebratocentrics with a chapter on "Terestrial Bone Accumulations" by
Anna Behrensmeyer, who, despite being a vertebratocentric, is pretty damn
good. :-)

Many say it was a mistake to come down from the trees, some say
the move out of the oceans was a bad idea. Me, I say the stiffening
of the notochord in the Cambrian was where it all went wrong,
it was all downhill from there.
