Packing: We take
care in our packaging! In fact, Steve is regularly commended for it. Records
are packed in deluxe cartons with crush zones, and packed tightly (to avoid
movement) usually with extra bubble-wrap inside. Smaller items (such as
CDs and cassettes) are usually
wrapped or padded with corrugated card and mailed in neat Jiffy bags. Larger
packages of CDs are mailed in sturdy custom made cartons.

the web services we offer, we still also publish a regular bi-monthly printed

We are ceasing sale of goods via Amazon due to being logged-out of their system with no way to get back in due to their "two-step verification" system not working, This meant people were making orders with no way for us to process them. Despite me contacting via their official sellers support form, I've received nothing but automated answers and no help on my enquiries whatsoever. Please buy direct or via Bandcamp or Discogs instead.
WE ALSO SELL VIA THESE ONLINE SERVICES...
We use Bandcamp for high quality download releases. Many of our own CD releases and available Audion magazines, plus Audion pdf/multimedia editions, can also be ordered worldwide via Bandcamp. All such releases can be listened to up to 3 times before you decide to buy. We have many different pages on Bandcamp. All can be accessed via the Bandcamp Index found on each page. For more info, look here: https://auriclemusic.bandcamp.com/

This useful site is not only an excellent discography research tool, managed by volunteer music fans around the world, it makes its money by running the Discogs Marketplace, which sells globally with only minimal sellers fees and has flexible / integrated PayPal billing.
The nature of this site means you can check-out the details, cover graphics, and often get easy access to YouTube preview videos.
In general, Steve's been uploading the info, track details etc., and I've been responsible for the graphics and video samples, links, etc.

I have Ultima Thule registered as a private seller on Ebay under my own name: Alan Freeman. Ebay has mostly been used for selling obscurities, rarities and collectables, old magazines, etc. But, since July 2021 I've listed a The Crack In The Cosmic Egg rom on there, as well as all printed Audion issues, a selection of DVD videos, and various other things.
