Get finely distilled writing, curated thoughtfully

Bundled with a serialized true crime thriller by Rand Leeb-du Toit

I’ll go into more detail on the genesis of Conked in another post, but for now I’m excited to bring this media entertainment bundle to you.

What is Conked?

At its heart Conk is a weekly substack newsletter which on deck’s (hey it’s an annagram spotted in the wild!) writing pieces of lasting value that are both intensely enjoyable in the moment, but that can also stand the test of time.

Topics include areas orthogonal to the usual contemporary, business and tech news: anthropology, culture, history, philosophy, future trends.

1+1=3, or Why Bundling is Better

In addition, Conked will include fortnightly chapter drops of Rand’s serialized true crime thriller Last Ally. It’s a ‘you can’t make this shit up‘ novel based on a true story surrounding South Africa’s worst serial murderer.

I’ll post more details on the novel to build suspense before the first chapter drop (sorry, I can’t help myself).

You can choose to nourish your senses with the curated writing, or the novel, or preferably both as your senses need more nourishment in these dystopian times!
