Funny you should mention that one -- I just read that a year-and-a-half ago or so, and was likewise impressed with it. I emailed Tucker about it, and we talked briefly about the book. I was set to send my copy to him for signing at one point, but got distracted and forgot about it...and several months later he passed away.

While I haven't read a large number of his works, what I've read has been consistently entertaining. But the TLLS remains far and above my favorite of his novels.
