I'll have to go with Penric's Mission, given a choice. There will be fans looking for - or Searching for - "Penric" who might pass over whatever is not labeled so.


I gather "Cedonia" is the equivalent of Greece in the 5GU. That makes sense.

I vote for A Meeting in Cedonia.  Of course, that means you'll most likely go with the other one, given my track record on choosing titles. :-)

Given the author's name on the cover, I'd buy it even if it were called A Novella or Another Story or Stuff.  I guess that may be why I'm not good at titles - the title is one of the last things that make me pick up a book.  Author is first, genre is probably second, recommendations from friends and then from reviewers comes next, and finally some combination of intriguing cover and title.
