Are there any good books to explain different firing cycles and temperatures etc ? I've got a hobbyfuser and have just left it set on the programmed schedules so far, but I want to learn the science behind it all and be able to work out my own schedules for different things ...

I had the original version of this which is very good (lent it out, not seen it back  Sad) not had chance to look through the updated version yet properly.

As Jeanette says, the Bullseye tips are great.

This book by Professor Keith Cummings is very very good, includes a lot about the history of glass too - it is more technical, and doesn't include projects, but if you really want to get behind the science...

Oh yes, brad walker book is great. I lent mine out and it was so goo, Louise bought her own. I didn't see the original, but heard many good things, but no one ever sells them to pick up that version..
