Do we need this article? Half the examples here mention "X's world is this mixed with Crapsack World"...

  • Inverted in a short story by Robert Sheckley. The protagonist, who lives in one of these, finds himself crossing dimensional boundaries into a universe where your physical surroundings don't change completely at random; the implication is that he finds ours to be the real World Gone Mad. By the end of the story he's a raving street preacher who spends his days ranting about how of course nothing can ever truly change and it's stupid to pretend otherwise.

This entry doesn't tell us what it's titled, the short story might as well not exist if you can't actually lead us to it.
