Magical Criticisms was a quarterly Magic Periodical published by Hugh Mackay (of Scotland) under the pseudonym Sirius from 1921-1922. It offered critiques of then current periodicals (and later books and effects) "containing the unbiased opinion of one who is in no way connected with the trade side of Magic."


  • October 1921 (Volume 1, No. 1)
  • December 1921
  • February 1921
  • April 1921
  • October 1922 (Volume 2, No. 1)

Mackay issued two subsequent periodicals under the same title in 1942, though apparently quite different from the original magazine.
