Equal Rites always bored me. Some of his early works are real kak. Never EVER tried reading anything of his outside discworld either.
Good Omens is amazing.
GO convinced me to give Neil Gaiman a try - still haven't read American Gods or Anasai Boys (probably spelled that wrong) but I've got a collection of short stories that I really love.
Equal Rites isn't my favorite Discworld book but it's not my least favorite yet, either. (I didn't like Eric or Sourcery, both of which were early works.) He definitely gets better with time as more characters show up and play off each other.
Not sure what I'll read after this. Equal Rites is short and I'm pretty far through it. I get to go to the bookstore today, though, so I'll have options.
On the subject of Terry Pratchett's other non-Discworld books: There are three or four books (depending on if you count his latest) that are marketed for a younger audience that take place in the Discworld, but aren't always listed as such. These are worth checking out, except maybe The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents
, which is probably more just my personal taste. Retold fairy tales are one of my favorite sorts of book. The other three are all related and would be good if you like the witches. They run closer to the other Discworld books, especially the latest.
