Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book!
I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!

If I wanted to add thermal mass to surround a wood stove, would cobblestones and field stone [large rocks from the ground] do the job? I assume that cobblestones or larger granite stones would take longer to gain heat, but they would hold the heat over a longer time than brick or cob surrounds.

Is there a table, site, that could help determine the heat storing potential in granite?
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
