This forum post explains it well. The short version: definite articles, purals and "de" words trigger the "e" ending for articles. Everything else is without the e.

What is the difference between ending with "staat er niet tussen" and "staat niet ertussen"? (Both accepted.)

Why can't I use the verb 'is' as in ........is er niet tussen. You can be talking about books and tell your friend that your favourite book is not among them (is er niet tussen). Or not?
