Epoptica was a Magic Periodical written and published by Jeff Busby from 1982-1989.

It can contained reviews of books and apparatus that were in stock and available for purchase at Jeff Busby Magic. Bonus sections would include a few magic effects.

The title was derived from the Greek epoptic meaning pertaining to an epopt, one to whom all secrets of a mystery have been revealed.

There were 12 issues plus an Epoptica Yearbook.

It was succeeded by the Thaumaturgist.
