Harry Potter predecessors

‘Mo money, ‘mo problems has certainly been the case for Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. Since publishing arguably the most popular children’s book series of all time, Rowling has been slapped with lawsuit after lawsuit, many of which are from fellow authors claiming she stole their material to create Harry Potter and his magical world. In a post on science-fiction blog io9.com called “Did Harry Potter Really Steal All These Story Ideas?” (and, no, Harry Potter would not be the one performing the stealing…he’s a fictional character and doesn’t actually exist), they take a look at books, and a couple movies, where ideas, characters, and plot are similar to Harry Potter and whether they have a case against Rowling for copyright infringement. It will also give you some good fantasy titles to add to your to-read list.
