I am not a Pratchett expert - Elizabeth has finally got me reading
discworld books, after many years of resisting it (I was put off as a
teenager) - but I regard discworld much more as a setting than a series.
In particular, everyone who has recommended Pratchett to me over the
years has recommended not starting with CoM.
On the other hand, the Lewis series is very much more a series, and I
find it odd that you have your students read Perelandra without having
first absorbed some of the background from Out of the Silent Planet.
