Word Ways

We Regroup To Lie Off The Spanish Main


Pete Stickland


Following "To Free Up a Wealth of Shining Promise" in the November 1989 Word Ways, I constructed another 300 anagrams of WHAT IS THE MEANING OR PURPOSE OF LIE: 75 quatrains extending what originator John Henrick envisions as "a significant collection in its own right." Having passed the 500 mark, I propose to limit annual output to 1000 anagrams so that Henrick may more easily keep track. Perhaps he might comment on the number of considers "significant"? After glimpsing the vast potential, I now see a million anagrams as insignificant, requiring a mere man-millenium of title shuffling.
