Mythlore 10 is an issue, featuring a cover illustration by Tim Kirk, of the journal Mythlore. Glen GoodKnight's article Death and the Desire for Deathlessness: The Counsel of Elrond contains a letter dated 17 November 1957 to Dr. Herbert Schiro, in which J.R.R. Tolkien discusses allegory in The Lord of the Rings and argues that is about death and deathlessness, not power and dominion.
