John Farrell, Doctor Janeway's Plague (, 2001)

The first thing I thought of when seeing the title of this novel was "oh, great, another Star Trek tie-in. Say it ain't so, Jimbob." Well, it ain't so, Billy Jack.

Or is he the same guy, still looking like he's forty even though he's ten times as old? And if so, how has he managed to keep himself so well-preserved?

I listened to this podiobook, read by the author. It dabbled in a great many things. There's Puritans and Native Americans. There's weird astronomical occurrences. There's a plague. And then there's Janeway. A man with a secret.

Definitely an interesting mix of things to weave into a tale, to be sure.

Some quite interesting elements but I got hopelessly confused towards the end and aspects of the plot seemed to be never really explained/resolved. Nothing really in the way of memorable characters and too many of them for my liking. The author's reading was good.
