Baffled- what did the fan say the similarities were? I mean, they've both
got magic and a castle in them but that seems about as far as it goes, to
me. The setting, the plot, the story, the characters, the feel all seem
nothing alike.

It doesn't, does it? I think Gaiman commented somewhere that when he was
writing it he realised that DWJ had written a book with characters from the
same myths, but I don't think they're supposed to link up in any way.
