Read in September, 2014

The action in Doomsday Book occurs in the environs of Oxford during two time periods, a near future in the mid twenty-first century (but note the publication date) and the fourteenth century. The Plague haunts the earlier period and an unknown virus stalks the future setting. Modern scholars and medieval villagers fight battles, mostly unwinnable, against these frightening foes. Kivrin, the time traveler, witnesses the old struggle while Professor Dunworthy works frantically to get her home.
