So, what is the new Preface saying?
I don't think the new preface is available online. Perhaps you can read it, or parts of it, with Amazon's preview service (''search inside'') or with similar online services; not sure.
I think, however, that my review does give a rather bold clue to what Hofstadter says in the new preface; re-read the paragraph that begins with the words ''In a word''. In particular, the new preface clarifies what the book is about, and (as I say in the review above), ''GEB is a serious book presenting a serious theory about consciousness''.
