Hello Heish1 welcome to the forum. Grab your favorite beverage and get comfortable in front of your computer.. there are several threads on the forum on these topics..
All new production for coal stoves, coal boilers, coal furnaces is sold out untill roughly March of next year.. if you find a stove for sale in a shop, it would have to be old stock or from a very smart shop owner who ordered a lot of stock early in the year.
If you call around you might find a shop with a few stoves in stock,, but hurry, they are going fast..
The best way to vent a coal stove is with a masonry chimney, the next best way is a prefab Stainless steel chimney.. next is a Power Vent or a stove with a Direct Vent system.. If you can afford it get a masonry chimney installed, and you can forget about chimney issues for the foreseeable future.
Take a look at these sites, http://www.hitzer.comhttp://www.keystoker.comhttp://www.Leisurelinestoves.comhttp://www.harmanstoves.comhttp://www.bakerstoves.com
If one of the above links doesn't work, just google the name and you should find the correct site address.
You may want to consider a stoker stove as well as a hand fired stove.
The only way you are going to get a stove this fall regardless of money spent is to find a leftover instock stove, or find a used stove in either a local paper or bulletin board. or on http://www.craigslist.com
or even on our 'items for sale' forum near the bottom of the 'home page' or the forum index page.. There have been several good buys on good used stoves and a few new ones as well in the last month.
Hope the above helps..
