This might not be a suitable topic for an intro, but:

The Penric stories seem to have an arc to them, even if only an emergent
one.  And of course, the collection was called *Penric's Progress*.
Progress... to what?  Is it just death?  And of course all our destinations
are death, one way or another.

Is that what the Penric stories are about?  Maturing and developing into
something that a god would wish to add to itself?
