I have a couple of saved articles for some interesting aspects about wood heat.

Here is one that covers a variety of odds and ends - but makes it clear that adding a little thermal mass around your stove can make a big difference!  http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles2/lee90.html

And the very best one ....  isn't available online.  It's "the art of chimney building" in this issue:  http://www.backwoodshome.com/previssues/issue91.html
