Lindsay Miller Nice list! You might look at Toolbox for Sustainable City Living: A Do-It-Ourselves Guide too, though much of it's topics have been covered, the bioremediation bit might be new.

Also, books by Sim Van Der Ryn. I've only read Ecological Design, which has a broader scope, but he seems to be an expert on composting toilets, and has books about that too.
