* There are several in Creator/KimNewman and Eugene Byrne's ''Back In The USSA'' series of short stories. Including one where a character comments that something was as strange as finding London Bridge in the Arizona desert.

* ''Literature/TheMirage'', by MattRuff, features a version of the War on Terror where the roles of the Arabs and USA are reversed, so there are plenty of these. Perhaps the most entertaining is that UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein, a gangster, also published several successful romance novels after ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zabibah_and_the_King Zabibah and the King]]'' (which here has a completely different plot).

Added DiffLines:

* In the short story "The Best and the Rest of Creator/JamesJoyce" by Ian [=McDonald=], the liner notes for the eponymous wax cylinder invites the listener to imagine a world where Joyce isn't a ''sarif'' music star or, even weirder, where the British Isles lie off the coast of France rather than North Africa.

Added DiffLines:

* In spite of the world being dominated by the Nazis in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', the 60s still sees the rise of a [[Music/TheBeatles particular 4-man band from occupied Britain]], even if they're forced to sing in German by the regime. Their name? "Die Käfer". Go ahead and look up what that translates to.

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, The Necromancer once mused on his past, thinking about how Adolf Hitler appreciated all the macabre things he did for the Third Reich (including working on a zombie army). It's part of the WhateleyUniverse that during the Second World War there was a superhero war going on behind the scenes, as well as some sort of magical war with Thule Gemeinschaft facing off against a number of white wizards.
