Did the events of Hob change the world/ create an alternate timeline (in which Dark Science happens) or was the wider world untouched by the Time Colonists etc. (I hope my question makes sense...)

Nothing was really altered by the Time Colonists after they were defeated (all of their technology evaporated into space, if you’ll remember). The reason Nephilopolis is different is simply that the wider world is much stranger than where Kim lived (the Pacific Northwest). A lot of readers just assumed that the setting of Dresden Codak was “normal” because I didn’t previously delve into the world too much, but it’s always been a bit strange, with big ruins and weird animals.
