Its a great story, read it.
But here's my question. If you found this device ... Which author would you search first?
I'd search Jack L Chalker first. Not only for more books but to see if there was a universe where he wrote conventional fiction with his unique voice.
What about Jim Butcher writing westerns?
I'd search Anne Rice to see if there was a universe where she didn't go insane.
What about you?

an actually published Last Dangerous Visions
a Thomas Harris who didn't fumble everything from Hannibal's ending onward
a Dickens who didn't get paid by the word and consequently had no reason to pad everything he wrote
an Artists Alley at a convention where I could find at least five readable comics by complete unknowns
William Gibson's Neuromancer series, currently up to novel #17
Dave Barry's novelizations of the Star Wars prequels

I wonder how many would have been writers in other circumstances, especially in times far gone. It was not something many people outside the lap of luxury did a few centuries ago.
Anyway, I'm going with Tolkien. What would his imagination have wrought with a different muse?
