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 discovered in a manger on Christmas Day and that he can rise from the dead in 3.8 seconds.
All we know is, he's not the Baby Jesus. But he is The Baby Stig.
