About: "The Believer is a monthly magazine where length is no object. We will focus on writers and books we like. We will give people and books the benefit of the doubt."
"Published by McSweeney's out of San Francisco, the magazine also covers other art forms, and features articles about authors, artists, and literary issues of the past and present, often relating to politics and popular culture. The Believer is published semi-monthly—10 issues per year—and sometimes featuring a CD or DVD insert."
