The following bibliography consists of books, chapters from books, and articles published during the 20^{th} century, that deal with magic squares, cubes, stars, etc. Because it contain only material that I am personally acquainted with (except for this first section), it is obviously not complete. However, it does contain about 300 items.

They define Pandiagonal Magic Cubes as all orthogonal and diagonal arrays are
pandiagonal magic squares and show 2 order 13 cubes as an example. By the new
definition, these are perfect magic cubes.
They also demonstrate that there are m1 broken pandiagonal magic squares
parallel to each of the 6 oblique pandiagonal magic squares.

In contrast to the voluminous literature for magic squares spanning 100's of years, there has been very little published on magic stars. The main sources of information I have been able to locate are:
H.E.Dudeney, 536 Puzzles & Curious Problems, Scribner's 1967. Pages 145147 and 347352.
Prof. Dr. F. Fitting, Panmagische Quadrate und magische Sternvielecke, Panmagic squares and magic stars, 1939, 70 pages. Pages 52 to 70 are on magic stars including lots of diagrams.
Martin Gardner, Mathematical Recreations column of Scientific American, Dec. 1965, reprinted with addendum in Martin Gardner, Mathematical Carnival, Alfred A. Knoff, 1975. Mostly on order 6, but mention made of total basic solutions for orders 7 & 8 (also corrected number for order6).
Martin Gardner, Some New Results on Magic Hexagrams, College Mathematical Journal, 31, 4, Sept. 2000. pp 274280.
Max Bruno Lehmann, Der geometrische Aufbrau Gleichsummiger
Zahlenfiguren (The Geometric Construction of Magic Figures), 1875,
xvi+384 pages.
This book is mostly about magic squares, but includes discussions and examples
of magic cubes and magic stars.
Reiter, Harold B., A Magic Pentagram, Mathematics Teacher, Vol. 76, No. 3, Apr., 1983, pp.174177.
Reiter, H. B. and Ritchie, D., A Complete Solution to the Magic Hexagram, College Mathematical Journal, 20, 1989, pp 307316.
Schubert, Hermann, Mathematische Mussestunden (Mathematical Pastimes)), 1963 reprint of 1900 work. Sections on various subjects. pp172176 discuss magic stars. (This section was not in the original or 1940 reprint).
Marián
Trenkler
of Safarik University, Kosice, Slovakia published a paper on Magic Stars.
It is called "Magicke hviezdy" (Magic stars) and appeared in Obzory matematiky,
fyziky a informatiky, 51(1998), pages 17. (my copy is an English translation)
(Obzory = horizons (or line of sight) of mathematics, physics and informatics.
This material is the subject of my Trenkler Stars <trenkler.htm> page.
A modified version of this paper was subsequently published as
Magic Stars, The IIME Journal, vol. 11, No. 10, Spring 2004, pp549554.

As mentioned at the top of the page, the above lists represent only books or articles that are in my library or that I have actually seen (except for the pre 1900 books mentioned at the start). For this reason, this bibliography should not be considered complete.
This Web site has 28 pages (May 2002) on magic squares. They start at Magicsquare.htm
This Web site has 19 pages (May 2002) on magic stars. They start at Magicstar.htm
For other Internet sites dealing with Magic Squares (and related subjects) see my links page.
