Nourse, Alan E. The Universe Between
Summary: Attempts to create a matter transmitter to facilitate large-scale transfer of resources between planets disrupts a universe through which the transfer occurs.
Comments: Allohistorical content is almost nil, as the bulk of the book maintains that the second universe differs in its number of spacial dimensions. It is not until nearly the end of the book that a few sentences indicate that it is an historically different Earth in which, e.g., the American colonies never broke away from England.
