(With apologies to Ken Hite and Kim Newman)
On paper Fanboy-1 is, if not a cash cow, at least a cash goat for Infinity. It's a world where most of the greats of science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction have had more productive careers; the resulting works are valuable not only on Homeline, but in almost any timeline with a divergence point after about 1945. All of which leads to a certain reluctance to officially notice what might be faint warning signs...
Infinity ruthlessly strip-mines the intellectual property of this timeline while ignoring subtly disquieting trends.
1927: H.P. Lovecraft has his short story "Call of Cthulhu" published a year early, triggering a reasonably lucrative (and lifesaving) relationship with Hollywood.
