In our first issue, Believer contributor Ben Marcus offered a luminous review of a portable planer. Sadly, we report today that after searching online, we can no longer find the planer available for easy purchase.

The review, however (along with our entire first issue) is still available online for your perusal here, with Ben Marcus’ review here, and, if you’d like to read it, the planer’s owner’s manual here.

And if you haven’t seen them yet, check out Ben Marcus’ new story The Dark Arts in The New Yorker, and Notes From the Hospital on the Frieze’s website.
