I think Penric's Mission is a bit bland, and possible too 
space-opera-reminiscent. It also possibly could be confused with Penric's 
Demon by the uninformed.

So I'd go with A Meeting in Cedonia, with as has been suggested, "A Penric 
Story" or "A Penric Story in the World of the Five Gods" as a subtitle.

Though it won't make any difference to me, because I won't be able to 
read it, just as I still haven't been able to read Penric and the Shaman, 
months after its release.

"Books are an amazing thing. Anyone who thinks of them as a escape from reality or as something you should get your nose out of and go outside and
play, as merely a distraction, or an amusement, or a waste of time, is dead wrong. Books are the most important, the most powerful, the most
beautiful thing humans have ever created. ... Books can reach out across space and time and language and culture and customs, gender, and age, and
even death and speak to someone they never met, to someone who wasn't even born when they were written, and give them help, and advice, and
companionship and consolation." -- Connie Willis
