I just don't see how a novel about Geordi is somehow not a "legitimate" TNG novel just because it doesn't fit into someone else's idea about what a TNG novel ought to be about.
By that logic, every Titan novel is a TNG novel as well.
Well, when the U.S.S. Challenger gets its own series, I'll buy the idea that it's not a TNG novel. But Geordi is its main character, and he hasn't been spun off into any other series. So I rather think the title is right: The Next Generation: Indistinguishable from Magic.

Heck, they've fractured DS9 so much that David George had to go through all kinds of gymnastics to get them back together for a 20th anniversary novel.
DSN the TV series itself "fractured" its cast, because DSN has a more realistic take on how its characters' careers would unfold than TNG.
