In mid 2011 you wrote within the website, "Prof. Woodward has agreed to publish Jaynes's unpublished chapters through the Julian Jaynes Society. I expect to have this publication ready sometime in late 2012."

There has been no update since then. Could you discuss the status of this project?

Thank you for your interest in the unpublished Jaynes material.

The short answer is the unpublished chapters do not constitute enough material for a complete book, and some additional writing will be added to both introduce each chapter as well as bring readers up-to-date on the relevant new supporting evidence that has emerged since the chapters were written.

The project had to be placed on hold when last year the opportunity to organize the 2013 Julian Jaynes Society Conference on Consciousness presented itself, which had to take place within a certain time frame in order to take advantage of the funding that became available.

We've just published the audio of the conference (which involved a lengthy editing process), and we are now returning to the Jaynes chapters project as well as several others that are currently in the works.
