Is there anyway it could be explained?
Easily: I goofed.
You mean it wasn't caused by Superboy punching the walls of reality?

Then there's the portrayal of the tragedy on Arvada III which if I recall is inconsistent with the previous way it is referred to by Vaughn in Avatar.

And after checking Memory Beta, yeah... Vaughn bore witness to a genocidal holocaust on Arvada III while DiW established the tragedy as a plague outbreak.

Not entirely implausible that it could be fixed into one event, but there's no attempt thus far that I've seen, and they don't seem to be talking about the same event when read side by side.
If someone released the plague genetically targetted to a specific group of people, then it could be classified as a genocidal holocaust.

They could easily have been two different events. I mean, why assume there can be only one tragedy in the entire history of a given planet? How many tragedies has Earth suffered in the last eight years alone? Avatar doesn't specify the date of the genocide on Arvada III, so there's no reason to assume it's the same event.

Is it my imagination, or are there numerous bits of Death in Winter which seem to have been sidelined or contradicted?.

In the A Time to... books, Beverly was leaving the E-E to take the place of a doctor of a certain name at Starfleet Medical, and DiW has her replacing somebody else entirely. (I don't remember either name, only that they were diferent...)

Dr. Yerbi Fandau was the head of Starfleet Medical who approached Bev to succeed him in that position upon his retirement.
