Reading Terry Pratchett

I have read my fair share of Pratchett but it took a brace of articles by libertarians Marc Sidwell and Scott Shackford for me to realise that much of the Discworld – especially Ankh Morpork – was a story about a fictional Hayekian order, or rather the struggles to acquire and keep one. I find it interesting the things you learn about someone when they go. You don’t know what you’ve got ’till its gone.

I am now contemplating re-reading much of the Discworld series. I guess I could start with the ones I own and worry about finding the others later, but I found this “Reading Order Guide” interesting. As well as showing the internal logical sequence of novels it shows the breadth of topics and themes that Pratchett tackled:
