Neil asked about a reported accusation of plagiarism against J. K. Rowling,
focussing in particular on Sorcerer's Stone and Eight Days of Luke. I agree
with Jodel that there's nothing in it. The coincidences are such as might be
noted between, say, Jane Eyre and Daphne DuMaurier's Rebecca. Some
similarities, and some inversions, but nothing remarkable in the world of
fiction.

now, if we were talking about Virgil and Homer.... :D
