* MoonLandingHoax: {{Inverted}}. It's widely accepted that the moon has never been visited by humanity, and those that believe it has are treated like conspiracy theorist nutjobs. Instead, President Kennedy apparently dedicated resources to building a form of transportation that went through the Earth's core.

** It was done as blackmail by the Goliath Corporation. They wanted Thursday to show them how to travel into books to strip them of their resources, and offered to restore Landen if she did. No point in trying to blackmail someone who doesn't remember what you're threatening them with.

* LikeRealityUnlessNoted: Averted, indeed almost ''inverted''. Every time geopolitics is mentioned, for instance, it sounds radically different to that of our world (Russia is Tsarist, one of the two biggest superpowers is based in Africa, Wales has left the United Kingdom - no word on Scotland) and things like Britain being invaded and occupied by the Nazis during WW2 are casually mentioned out of hand.

Thursday Next lives in an AlternateHistory. In her world, TimeTravel, cloning and genetic engineering are commonplace; resurrected dodos are the household pet of choice. The obscenely powerful [[MegaCorp Goliath Corporation,]] which nearly singlehandedly reconstructed England after [[WorldWarTwo World War II,]] now runs the country as a virtual police state. And literature, particularly classic literature, is very, very, ''very'' SeriousBusiness. Writers are revered with nearly spiritual devotion, controversial claims about books and authors can be criminal, and an entire police squad, the [=LiteraTecs=], exist to keep the literary scene in order. Thursday works for just such a unit in Swindon, with her friend and colleague, the exceedingly polite Bowden Cable.

In the course of rescuing her GadgeteerGenius uncle Mycroft from international arch-criminal [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Acheron Hades,]] a [[CardCarryingVillain gleefully evil]] individual with supernatural powers, Thursday discovers the Great Library, a sort of pocket dimension that exists within the pages of all works of literature, where all literary characters live. They're self-aware, acting out their roles when a person reads a book but chilling out and living their own lives as soon as they close it. The Great Library is governed by the Council of Genres and kept in line by Jurisfiction, ''another'' police force whose task it is to make sure the plot of every book stays the same every time someone reads it.
