I've been meaning to do a review of Chopin and Beyond: My Extraordinary Life in Music and the Paranormal by pianist Byron Janis.

Wonderful, Elene. We are reviewing some of the books that have been on the market a while in the November journal. The guidelines are here: Book Review Guidelines. For the November issue, I would need the text by September 15. Let me know if you want me to reserve the space for you. (You can reach me at 

It sounds like you won't want a review of this book, since it is a number of years old.  I was never aware that it mattered how old a book was.  As to whether it is truly still a relevant book, enough that you want to include it, I don't know.  A large part of the book discusses events that happened a few decades ago, for example a good deal about Uri Geller's early career.

I probably need to update the guidelines, Elene. In the Searchlight newsletter, we are only looking for books published in the last year or so. The purpose there is to introduce people to what's new. In our journal, however, we are publishing some reviews of older books that are worth a second look. Yours could very well fit there. Thanks!

Thanks for the clarification.
