My favorite Sci-fi writer, Rick Cook, He wrote a series of books were a computer programmer was transported to a world of magic where he discovered that by creating a magic programming language he could control magic in a way the natives of the world never could.

He had a heart attack after writing the 5th book which he claims created a change in him which prevented him from continuing to write fiction. Parts of the 6th book have been released but it seems unlikely that it'll ever be completed.
