* RoyalStatesOfAmerica: Played with in "O Brave Old World!", which describes a timeline in which America remains under the British crown, but Britain itself doesn't. In this timeline, the crown prince falls in love with America while on a tour, so when he becomes king he moves his capital and parliament to Philadelphia. Some years later, a group of his subjects rebel against being ruled by a distant monarch with no grasp on their interests -- and thus, Britain gains its independence.

* RoyalStatesOfAmerica: Played with in "O Brave Old World!", which presents an alternate timeline in which George III's father went to visit the American colonies when he was still Prince of Wales, and liked the place so much that when he became King he moved the seat of government to Philadelphia. As a result, America remains part of the Empire but England rebels and fights a war of independence following the promulgation of a controversial new law affecting the price of tea.

* HeAlsoDid: The foreword to one collection of Davidson's stories notes that people who are mostly familiar with his crime fiction often have this reaction to the discovery that he wrote SF, and vice versa.

Among other things he ghost-wrote a few of the later Literature/ElleryQueen books, when Dannay & Lee had reduced their input to plotting.

Several of his notable SF works feature history that never quite was, such as in his stories featuring Dr Esterhazy, a respected scientist in the 19th-century {{Ruritania}}n empire of Scythia-Pannonia-Transbalkania, or the Vergil Magus series, beginning with ''The Phoenix and the Mirror'', which is set in the Roman empire not as it was but as people of the Middle Ages imagined it to be.
