There is a discarded scene in his unpublished papers at California State University at Fullerton, in which the German high command break through by scientific means into a real alternative world in which the Allies won the war. They send agents to Abendsen to find out if somehow he has crossed over, and then written his book upon his return. This scene would establish too strongly the Allied alternative history, and recomplicate things to an unwanted degree, introducing another science fiction element. Wisely Dick dropped the scene.
