So, I have all of the Sven Kirsten books, all of the Beachbum Berry books, Liquid Vacation, The Mai-Kai book, both Tiki Road Trip books, Trader Vic's Tiki Party, Taboo: The Art of Tiki, and the Smuggler's Cove book.

Anything else you'd recommend?

Personal Statement: "I drank what?"
"Minimalist Tiki" has a FANTASTIC deep dive into rums.

There's also "Rum Curious", which has some nice technicals about rum production but is mostly tasting notes.

If you're a history fan "And a Bottle of Rum" is absolutely delightful (I always took it when we vacationed).

And last but not least "Tiki" by Shannon Mustipher- although I recommend this with one caveat- lots of the drink recipes include "fat washed" spirits, which is great for bars, but not ideal for the individual home unless you're having a party.

edit: forgot one. "Kahiki Supper Club: A Polynesian Paradise in Columbus" a tribute to a fallen tiki palace.

A couple I would recommend - not tiki books, as such, but they provide excellent general information on cocktails, and contain many excellent recipes - Michael Jackson's Bar & Cocktail Companion and Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh.
