NewThe Discworld Reading Order

(Last Updated On: May 7, 2019)

Terry Pratchett’s magnum opus: one of the best, and definitely the funniest, fantasy series of all time.

Small Gods
Novel published in 1992.
The events of Small Gods take place decades (or more) earlier than most other Discworld stories, leading to its placement here. However, stylistically-speaking – and in the case of a single time-travelling character – it may make more sense to read it in publication order. Hence, it is listed at both points in this Reading Order.
