I still have two copies that Paz sent me a long time back-- one is "Nom.Syntax etc.: Reflections in Indonesian" which seems truncated, the other is "Nom.Syntax etc.: Implications for Austronesian Typology". Are these (one or both) what you're referring to? Both are in Wordpad, and some of the formatting is screwy, though not impossible to figure out. Someone cleverer than I might be able to set them right.
