Mythlore is a biannual peer-reviewed academic journal published by the Mythopoeic Society. Although it publishes articles that explore the genres of myth and fantasy in general, special attention is given to the three most prominent members of the Inklings: J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. The current editor-in-chief is Janet Brennan Croft.
Mythlore appeared January 1969 under the editorship of Glen GoodKnight, founder of the Mythopoeic Society. Early issues were fanzines, albeit with a "sercon" ("serious and constructive") bent. Mythlore became a peer-reviewed journal beginning with issue #85 (Winter 1999), under the editorship of Theodore Sherman.
The full text of Mythlore from 2002 onward is available in Expanded Academic ASAP. Mythlore is also indexed in the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature, the Modern Language Association International Bibliography, and other sources. A detailed index (with abstracts) to issues 1-100 was published in January 2008 by The Mythopoeic Press and is updated by addenda on the journal's website.
