The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses by Jesse Schell is very good.

Online, check out Daniel Cook's blog Lost Garden.  If you click "essays" at the top of the page and check the links for "worth reading" and "science of game design" you'll likely find interesting content.

 

Hope that helps! :)

Level Up!: The Guide to Great Video Game Design by Scott Rogers will teach you a thing or two about level design. It's definitely worth a read.
