Not at all. There is a minor character in Small Gods who is a more major 
character in Thief of Time, and I think it would be equally enjoyable to 
read ToT first and then go back to the earlier book with context. ToT is 
full of characters who appear in previous books (one witch, Death and 
family), so if you don't get annoyed by reading out of order, it will give 
you a good idea of Pratchett in general. Plus it is a very amusing book.
