Books & Magazines

Just 1 new arrival in this section, and some items have sold-out.
I am planning on listing Audion magazines on Bandcamp shortly.

The Crack In The Cosmic Egg
2020 revised and expanded DVD-Rom edition

A vastly revised and expanded version is nearing completion, which will blow your socks-off - as it's just got so much in it! You can invest in this labour of love and pre-order with payments/donations of £30 or more. Either, instruct us to charge your credit/debit card, send a UK bank cheque payable to Ultima Thule, or pay via PayPal to utle2uk@btconnect.com. Investors will get free dedicated copies upon publication. To keep up on developments join our "The Crack In The Cosmic Egg" Facebook group, and maybe also help with some missing info or pictures, etc. For those that don't have DVD drives, download and USB stick versions will also be made available. See the illustrated panel on the news page!


A Fistful Of Spaghetti
Italian music encyclopedia

A circa 300 page A4 book in the same manner as the original "The Crack In The Cosmic Egg" will hopefully be pblished later this year. All my writing and provisional layout has been completed, just awaiting Steve to do his final editorial job before publication. We are planning on doing this ourselves and will be running a fund raiser once the book is complete. We do also welcome any offers or help from publishers that may want to be partners in this project. For more detailed information, see the illustrated panel on the news page!
