IMO they're better than his later work.
I enjoyed the 'Hand of Thrawn' duology for the way it thumbed its nose at the ridiculously over-powered Jedi tricks that Luke used in the other tie-in media. Zahn's interpretation of The Force seems most in keeping with the OT, IMHO.
His Thrawn trilogy really is where Star Wars tie-in books begin and end, though. No others have even come close.
Some say that he was the first choice to play the new Doctor but turned it down when he couldn't put racing stripes on the TARDIS.
All we know is, he's called The Stig.
