it was amazing
bookshelves: star-wars, space-opera

Excellent - TZ delivers!

Timothy Zahn absolutely defined the gold standard for Star Wars fiction: he delivers hard SF (well, hard space opera) and makes it work. He uses the established canon but tells his own story and creates his own characters. Even now, when the EU has been rendered "legends" he takes the Thrawn-as-canonized-by-Rebels and creates the backstory that defines the Thrawn of legend.

It's a real Holmes and Watson story, too -with Thrawn as Holmes and his aide Vanto as Watson. Following clues, making deductions - it all works well. And Thrawn's study of art is still here.

Definitely worth reading (and reading again).
