I just remembered that [2] has a nice chapter about grounding, that covers
how to distribute ground to different parts of a device, including if
you have multiple PCBs and multiple devices that form a system.
The book contains a lot of hands-on information on how to design
electronic circuits that are hard to find in a collected form,
so i think it's a recommended reading even without grounding problems ;-)

I must not become metastable. 
Metastability is the mind-killer.
Metastability is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my metastability. 
I will permit it to pass over me and through me. 
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. 
Where the metastability has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
