One thing that might be interesting is to discuss reader responses to
the Penric stories particularly, and maybe the whole 5GU reader response.
The theology might be interesting -- we've seen a lot more of the
B*stard than the others, but (for instance) how do the Five relate
to each other, and in particular the B*stard to the other gods (is
there animosity? do they cooperate? what happens if one has conflicting
goals? what do they do and how do they relate to humans?)
