Word Ways

In the August 1998 issue of Word Ways, I embarked on "The AEINRST Problem", a wide-ranging search for transposals of the letters AEINRST. In that article, I presented transposals for 155 different sequences of these letters (counting RAINEST and RAINE ST as the same sequence). Since then I have discovered additional transposals in dribs and drabs. Four of these were parceled up in the November 1999 Colloquy: ARTESIN, ATIN-RES, ENTAIRS and S'INTREA, bringing the number of transposals to 159.
