Sci-Fi stories involving the Maitreya Buddha

Are there any sci-fi stories that involve the future appearance of the Maitreya Buddha? Looking for stories where the character is primarily identified as the Maitreya, rather than general "Second Coming" stories where the character could conceivably belong to a number of different soteriological interpretations.

"No big secret, just looove yogurt!"

The Fourth Doctor snacks on jelly babies; Michael Westen just loooves yogurt; Martian Manhunter's love of Oreos borders on addiction. Tell me: what are some other fictional characters who are obsessed with one particular food?

In sixteen hundred and something something, recommend me a novel.

Please recommend an excellent historical novel about life in 17th-century North America (preferably New England). I'm re-reading Toni Morrison's A Mercy right now, and I'm looking for more stuff about the day-to-day life -- chores, food, bartering, the intersection of European colonists with indigenous American populations, etc. I s'pose I'd be okay with a nice non-fiction book, too, but the preference is for fiction.
