Coal Magazine

PostBy: Lightning On: Fri Jan 18, 2013 3:51 pm

I googled "coal magazine" and see there are a few magazines out there. I was interested in getting a subscription. What is the best one for us people that are using coal for home heating? Any recommendations? 8-)

I'll say browsing this forum is going to be more informative, easier and cheaper than any magazine subscription. :)

No, I came across it on the net about a year ago, but I never subscribed.

Yeah man, I love this site :D .... I just thought it would be cool to get a mag chucked full of antique base burners, current up to date heat monsters (furnaces and boilers) and stokers.. Along with some science about coal and burning it. Would make some awesome toilet reading!!!!! :lol:

Anyone get a coal mag?? I'd love some input :woot:

I'm guessing the government squashed any publishing co., or put a ban on anyone trying to promote this type of fuel. I myself would like to see a "photo-spread" of some of the antique stoves that have graced our homes over the yrs. And I guess it might be interesting to compare some of the newer stoves or furnaces... maybe.

Boy what paranoia. What's your evidence of the government squashing any publication? Coal Age magazine is published by Mining Media International, 11555 Central Pkwy, Jacksonville, FL 32224. It publishes about a dozen magazines all related to mining. Absolutely no evidence the magazines can't publish anything their subscribers and advertisers are willing to pay for. It's a world wide trade magazine covering many topics in many countries.

How about contacting one of their editors and suggesting an article about antique stoves? They just might be thrilled to hear from you and learn of this forum.

Wow. Caught the eye of a site moderator. :) Must've struck a nerve. Just trying to see who's out there. (Literally). Lots of conspiracy theories out there Mr. Yanche, and not many of them have much proof,(nor do I.) As for contacting the magazines for special interests stories, might be a good idea. How much chance do you think I'ld have?

I would think if you got the right editor they would be receptive. These are trade magazines and I'm sure good editors are tired of publishing the same old stuff, production numbers, sales forecasts, product announcements, etc. A article about antique coal burning appliances would be different. Try telephoning one and discuss it. Offer to e-mail a couple of photos (with the photographers permission of course). Good luck.

Did find a number of magazines geared towards coal production, but not much about stoves. There was an interesting mag that was touted as "the underground" coal magazine. Don't know if they're underground cause the feds don't like them, or if that's just where the coal is? ;)
