    William Kelly

    Dedicated to my mother and father. THE STAGGERING SIMILARITIES

    between the book for children calledTravels with Li Po

    And the Harry Potter series.

    Subject: Travels with Li Po Date: Mon, 26 Jan 2009 12:13:15 +0000 The Goldsmith Press Ltd. Newbridge,

    Co. Kildare

    This is to say that Mr. William Kelly submitted some chapters of his book, Travels with

    Li Po, in the early 90s. As we are mainly a Poetry Press, we were unable to publish the

    book -- but were impressed by its quality.

    Brief Introduction to the Synopsis

    Coming here to read this you are likely an intelligent person who wants to know the truth about Harry Potter or a functionary of Rowlings legal firm assigned to monitor every word, movement, change of tense, syntax or whatever I decide to do to my own text so that they can fulfill their divine mission to protect the public money-spinning persona of their valuable charge - J.K. Rowling. Aware as I am that these people are paid and paid well to do what they have to do, and act, for the most part, out of economic prudence and the all the rest of it, I cannot say I personally have much respect for any of them considered as a class. Get a life , is my first response; and my second, - do something to leave the world a marginally better place than you found it. My book TRAVELS WITH LI POwas written for children to help them out of the morass of a conflicted and frightening world and I have to say that my experience of Schillings and Little, Blair and their supporters suggests to me that none of them appear to have done much to lessen the conflict or ameliorate the fear but seem solely intent on filling their pockets. My views however on such matters are not relevant here nor indeed are my views on the literary merits or lack of them of the Potter series (even if I know better than to accept it all as the product of single mind) or, at any rate, the three volumes I have managed to clamber through. This brief exposition of the similarities between Harry Potter and my own creation, however embarrassing it may be for all concerned including myself, is as short as I can make it because all the factual correspondences cited in it are important. A fuller exposition you will find on the other links below. The literary world is well enough policed by conscientious and learned people who still have some reverence for the craft above and beyond its monetary exchangevalue; and there is no doubt in my mind that this document will, sooner or later, make its way to their archives astestimony to what, I am convinced, is one of the most blatant, crassest, brutally cynical examples of competitiveplagiarism in the entire history of world literature. I place it, in terms of authenticity, alongside the fictitious diaries of Adolf Hitler that not so long ago swindled gullible editors out of a fortune and conned literary experts into thebargain. Lastly, a world wherein I am not at liberty, by reason of legal intimidation to express these views is one I mustwork to change rather than live to support. Now, I will leave you to figure it all out for yourself, with my assurance thatwhat you are reading is entirely the truth but, by no means, the whole picture. There are people out there who can placethe missing pieces of that together better than I if they would ever find the courage, or had conscience enough, to do so.

P161: Nicolas Flamel, she whispered dramatically, is the only known 'Yes, now he is an immortal, like me.' maker of The Philosphers Stone! (Hermione)

    Page 1

    EXPLANATION: This is important enough to be part of the title of the Harry Potter book. In ...Li Po it is established as the goal to die for. It is indeed what my heroOwen Muldoon is all about and you would be hard pressed to find a better or more exciting goal for any story appealing to young or old.

    P38/39: 'The man who finds The Philosopher's Stone never dies,' said Li Pohaughtily. 'The Philosophers Stone, that's what they call the mystery of

    things, the answer to the riddle of the universe. Li Po has all power and allwisdom. He can turn lead into gold as well.' 'Gee,' said Owen. 'I wouldn't mind having that trick up my sleeve.' 'Many have tried, earthling. Down through the ages there have been wizardsand warlocks. In what you call the Middle Ages they called themselves alche-mists. Before that they were known as The Druids. Li Po learnt his skills inEgypt. He was an explorer. Still is.' 'Did he tell you the secret?' 'Tell me Li Po. Tell me the secret!' pleaded Owen.

    'P36: You're not as stupid as you look, earthling. Li Po was a great magician.He found The Philosopher's Stone.' 'The what? ' 'Never mind....... Li Po found the secret of eternal life. I am Li Po, master of myself. I am over two thousand years old. ' P35: 'My master was an ancient Chinese philosopher and a magician.Does itshow?' 'Yes.'

    P43: I don't know if it's all a dream and I don't care no more neither . Don't talk to me about eternal youth or Chinese magicians or anything elsefor that matter! I am going to sleep......after I say my prayers.

    P161: A stone that makes gold and stops you ever dying! said

    Harry .Anyone would want it!

    P215:As for the stone it has been destroyed.... (Dumbledore) But that means he and his wife will die, wont they?(H P) They have enough Elixir stored to set their house in order and then,yes, they will die.

    P162: Harry and Ron were still discussing what they would do with aPhilosophers Stone if they had one. It wasnt until Ron said hed buy hisown Quidditch team

    P161: The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making ThePhilosophers Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers.The stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also producesthe Elixir of Life which will make the drinker immortal. (Hermione).

    PLOT continued THE FOREST Page 2

    EXPLANATION:The enchanted forest that OM has to go through is to facilitate his first encounter with his real self and his hidden power s. If he calls it a jungle on occasion it is only to allude to the fact that in all its wildness and hunger it has much to do with himself and the world as it is.

    P39: 'Are there wild animals in this jungle Li Po?' 'You bet. Millions of them.' P35: Often he could discern the shape of animals that came near orheard their presence in the bush. Maybe, I wouldn't even recognizethem even if I did see them, he thought. Strange fruit hung from treesall around him and once a huge snake dropped down from a branchright in front of him and scared him half to death. P41: Creatures stirred in their branches and things moved in the tallgrass all around . P37: And horses too. They like to ride the horses especially at night.Angels taught the horse how to run.

    P32: If you are not out of the forest by then you will never get out. 'P34: When you sleep at night make sure you are well covered. Apartfrom that you will need all the luck you can get.'

    P38: LiPo has all power and all wisdom. (Bart) P35: I've decided to guide you through the forest,' said he. 'Poor Bartdidn't like it. But, what's a Puffin without a conscience, eh?'

    P27: Au contraire. It's just that this forest here casts a powerful spell

    over anybody what gets too close to it. If it takes a likin' to ye, you'redone for

    P34: The deeper he went into the jungle the darker it became, until thefoliage became so thick that scarcely any light got through at all. Thenoises and screams that echoed all around him grated on his nervesand made him fearful.

    P95: The forests full of dangerous beasts, everyone knows that.P182: The forest? he repeated. theres all sorts of things inthere - P185: He walked forward and shook the centaurs hand. P183: Its not easy ter catch a Unicorn, theyre powerful magicalcreatures. (Hagrid)


    P181: Well think again boy - its into the forest youre going and Immuch mistaken if youll come out in one piece. (Hagrid).

    P183: Theres nothin that lives in the forest thatll hurt yeh if yerwith me or Fang, said Hagrid.

    P184: And into the clearing came - was it a man, or a horse?

    P185: At last, he said, The forest hides many secrets.

    P186: Their ears seemed sharper than usual. Harrys seemed to bepicking up every sigh of the wind, every cracking twig. What was goingon? Where were the others? P186: They walked for nearly half an hour, deeper and deeper into theforest, until the path became almost impossible to follow because thetrees were so thick.

    P111: 'It would appear so,' said Owen noting the marblefloor of black and white tiles that stretched out beforehim like an endless chessboard.

    P33/34: Li Po hopped quickly up to his mirror pretending not to see his master's disgruntled face. Then, the old

    man laughed: 'It's not that he's vain, as you suppose,' hewhispered. 'That is all an act for your benefit. He knows a great deal about you.

    P29: 'And may I present, gentlemen and unseenpresences ... P47Owen moved on. Once or twice he looked back, notaltogether sure if he hadn't been talking to a ghost.

    P59: At least that was his first thought. His second was -And I won't be getting rich either.

    look on his first day at Stonewall High -....

    P19: Indifference ruled everywhere. He was alone inthe midst of it like a tiny spider in a big bath. The sunsank in a blaze of purple and a cold wind came out of nowhere. That too frightened him.

    P114: As the oars hit the water he covered his nose andmouth with his hands to ward off the intolerable pongthat rose from the black river.

    explained in the complete version of this document. SIMILARITIES OF STYLE

    P67: Yes, you know, BELIEFS! P30: Li Po could THINK! (use of caps for specific emphasis)

    P78: The entrance to the Virtue Agency lay atop of a steep flight of marble steps.The huge glass door was flanked by lofty statues in the Greek style and therewere a brace of bronze lions on their plinths. As soon as he entered the spacious

    foyer his eyes met a pretty little gi rl seated at a desk big enough for a game of ping-pong. She was evidently the receptionist and a busy one at that, for she hadno less than six phones all around her. So acute was Owen's shyness that hehesitated before approaching her and instead pretended to read the notice boardthat stretched right across the far wall. He adjusted what was left of his clothesand tried to ignore the chaffed toes that poked through his trainers.

    P51: He closed his eyes and took a deep breath and then another until finally heregained his composure. Slowly, he began to descend. When he touched theground he fell down flat in the dust and lay there listening to h is heart poundingaware that his fingers were still fluttering like blades of grass . He hauled himself

    towards the gate and lent back against i t letting out an enormous sigh of relief. LiPo flew down and perched on his shoulder. 'Can't...can't understand how that gate got locked...I was sure....I locked it, said the bird.

    P17: Standing there at the rails, a light warm breeze blowing through his thinblond hair he felt good. It was a beautiful night filled with the scent of plants, themoon so hugely near and bright, and the sea so calm. He stood there, looking outat the vast expanse of the ocean hoping to see again, in the dying light, the schoolof dolphins that had followed the ship for miles.

    P45: The village was quiet as he approached and seemed to lack any color but amousy grey. A dog or something whimpered in the distance. Shutters creaked in ablustery wind. He pushed the big wooden gate. It gave way easily. Still, he couldhear nothing. A long street flanked by old tenements stretched before him in thedying light. There were no pavements and no tarmac on the road, just the sameold grey dust everywhere. He could see no signs of life at first until at the veryend of the street he spied what he thought was a pile of rags.

    P202: HAVE YOU GONE MAD? Ron bellowed. P196: SO WHAT? Harry shouted. .There wont be any Hogwarts to getexpelled from! (use of caps for specific emphasis)

    P63: A tinkling bell rang somewhere in the depths of the shop as they steppedinside. It was a tiny place, empty except for a single spindly chair which Hagrid

    sat on to wait. Harry felt strangely as though he had entered a very strict library;he swallowed a lot of new questions which had just occurred to him and lookedinstead at the thousands of narrow boxes piled neatly right up to the ceiling. Forsome reason, the back of his neck prickled. The very dust and silence in hereseemed to tingle with some secret magic.

    P115: They pulled on their dressing-gowns, picked up their wands and creptacross the tower room, down the spiral staircase and into the Gryffindorcommon-room. A few embers were still glowing in the fireplace, turning all thearmchairs into hunched black shadows. They had almost reached the portraithole when a voice spoke from the chair nearest them: I cant believe you aregoing to do this, Harry.

    P108: At three-thirty that afternoon, Harry, Ron and the other Gryffindors hurried down the front steps into the grounds for their first flying lesson. It was aclear, breezy day and the grass rippled under their feet as they marched downthe sloping lawns towards a smooth lawn on the opposite side of the grounds tothe forbidden forest, whose trees were swaying darkly in the distance.

    P54: For a famous place, it was very dark and shabby. A few old women weresitting in a corner, drinking tiny glasses of sherry. One of them was smoking along pipe. A little man in a top hat was talking to the old barman, who was quItebald and looked like a gummy walnut. The low buzz of chatter stopped whenthey walked in.

    P76: Owen observed that the people in the pews ate as they prayed so thatthe place looked and felt like a huge restaurant. Some of them cried while theyate. Owen knelt down beside a woman. At first he tried to pray but when he sawthat the woman was eating sandwiches his mouth began to water and hi s stomachrumbled. Eventually, unable to endure it any longer, he turned to her abruptly:"Could I have a sandwich, Missus?"

    P70: As he wiped the dust from off his badge with his sleeve he saw funeralcortege coming up the hill towards him. As it passed, he noticed with awe that it

    was no ordinary funeral but something of a mass funeral. He counted. There wereno less than one hundred and fifty coffins being transported uphill in a longprocession that seemed to go on forever. Each coffin was carried by four men inwhite coats and white trousers and even white shoes while a representative of thedeceased walked behind dressed in the usual garb of black. Behind him walkedthree more people, also in bl ack, the relatives. These three were all women. Everycoffin therefore had one man to follow and three women. And it was odd too howsprightly and healthy the men in white looked compared to the ones who slow-marched after them. These were frail and stooped and their skin a greyish bluecolor. Nobody cried. P22: When the sun it self peaked above the horizon he felt as happy as he ever did

    in his life. The sea, as if in obedience, became softer as if to reassure him. Fish of radiant hues that he had never seen before leapt up out of the water and ploppedback in again. He was alive like them and just as happy. P50: Owen looked down unable to believe he had climbed so far and yet secretly-proud of the fact that he had survived. P100: Half an hour later he found himself in what appeared to be the local jail.Local is scarcely the right word, for it stood in the countryside miles outside town.There wasn't a house in sight. And it didn't quite resemble any jail he had everseen. It looked more like a lighthouse, its tower rising to a gigantic height. Aroundits turret, crows circled and squawked. P54: Owen followed him into the sitting room. The first thing he noticed was thevaulted ceiling festooned with gold stars and the many chandeliers whose candle-light gave the place an eerie glow. He looked around hoping Li Po had followedhim but the Puffin was nowhere to be seen. Nobody seemed to notice his arrival.There were a number of highly decorated people in the room. Every now and thenone of them would break out in loud applause. Oddly enough, the room wassparsely furnished for its immense size. Because of the ceiling's great height all thefurniture in the room, especially the two long divans in the center, lookeddwarfed. Some of the ladies and gentlemen sat on these while all the othersstrolled around the room like sleepwalkers.

    P71: Harry pressed on through the crowd until he found an empty compartmentnear the end of the train. He pu t Hedwig inside first and then started to shove andheave his trunk towards the train door. He tired to lift it up the steps but couldhardly raise one end and twice he dropped it painfully on his foot. "Want a hand?" It was one of the red-haired twins he'd followed through theticket box. P123: As seven Oclock drew nearer, Harry left the castle and set off towards theQuidditch pitch in the dusk. He'd never been inside the stadium before. Hundreds

    of seats were raised in stands around the pitch so that the spectators were highenough to see what was going on. At either end of the pitch were three goldenpoles with hoops on the end. They reminded Harry of the little plastic sticks Mug-gle children blew bubbles through, except that they were fifty feet high. P121: As the owls flooded into the Great Hall as u sual, everyone's attention wascaught at once by a long thin package carried by six large screeching owls. Harrywas just as interested as everyone else to see what was in this large parcel andwas amazed when the owls soared down and dropped it right in front of him,knocking his bacon to the floor. They had hardly fluttered out of the way when an-other owl dropped a letter on top of the parcel.

    P165: He couldn't ever remember feeling happier. He'd really done something to be proud of now - no one could say he was just a famous name any more. The eve-ning air had never smelled so sweet. He walked over the damp grass, reliving thelast hour in his head, which was a happy blur....

    P100: And the fleet of little boats moved off all at once, gliding across the lakewhich was as smooth as glass. Everyone was silent, staring up at the great castleoverhead. It towered over them as they sailed nearer and nearer the cliff on whichit stood.

    P87: Harry had never even imagined such a strange and splendid place. It was litby thousands and thousands of candles which were floating in mid -air over fourlong tables, where the rest of the students were sitting. These tables were laidwith glittering golden plates and goblets. At the top of the hall was another longtable where the teachers were sitting. Professor McGonagall led the first years uphere, so that they came to a halt in a line facing the other students, with theteachers behind them. The hundreds of faces staring at them looked like pale lan-terns in the flickering candlelight.
