The Believer, a five-time National Magazine Award finalist, is a bimonthly literature, arts, and culture magazine. In each issue, readers and subscribers will find journalism and essays that are frequently very long, book reviews that are not necessarily timely, and interviews that are intimate, frank, and also very long. There are also intricate illustrations by Tony Millionaire and a rotating cast of guest artists; poems; a comics section; and regular columns by Nick Hornby and Daniel Handler.

Each issue is perfect-bound and 128 pages, printed by friendly Canadians on recycled, acid-free, heavy-stock paper and suitable for archiving, framing in a very thick frame, or reading in the tub.

Pieces from our latest issue can be read online in full at, and you can browse past issues here.

Subscribe now to start your subscription with Issue 113, in which Pablo Calvi reports on an oil pipeline that threatens indigenous populations in Ecuador, Alex Mar has afternoon tea with the Church of Satan’s high priest, Daniel Werb discusses harm-reduction programs in Tijuana’s red-light district, and Esmé Weijun Wang explores living with schizophrenia. Other essays focus on a copper-mining pit in Montana, the irresistibly gothic family whose middle son is the inspiration behind Bolaño’s mad-genius poet in 2666, and the anarchist who’s quietly fanning the flames of our country’s insurrectionary movements. Oh yes, and the winners of the eleventh annual Believer Book Award and the fifth annual Believer Poetry Award will be announced. For new subscribers, this issue will arrive shortly after Christmas.
