Really, there's nothing wrong with order of publication, as long as you
remember that Pratchett didn't really hit his stride, thematically
speaking, till the third or fourth Discworld book.

Gwynne: True. But I love Rincewind. He's Fate's chew toy; his
incompetence isn't his own fault, and at times it has a genius of its
 own. And his inability to do magic isn't his fault, as we find out
eventually. Plus he has the luggage! He was also a refreshing change
 from a swathe of strong, noble fantasy heroes at the time. I love
how often he walks briskly away from danger, only to step right in it.
