Yeah, seconding the Graham Stone book. It paid for itself within the first few months of me getting it. I have been nearly comatose in terms of glass work this past year, and I've still cracked it open two or three times to check on information that I just would not be able to find anywhere else.

The really nice thing about the book is that there are a ton of specific examples and schedules which you can just pull as-is and use directly, but he also goes into sufficient detail about his assumptions and thinking about the heat transfer process from the kiln to the glass. That way if you're dealing with a situation that isn't quite covered with an exact schedule, you're usually able to pull a few similiar schedules together and think through how to change things for your particular situation.
