Just a short word of advice to all that consider doing a script on a novel.

It is pointless (apart from excercise) to do it without the explicit agreement of the author. Contact the author directly or through lit agent.

Never mind who you are and how big they might be. A direct inquiry has a surprisingly good chance of a response. Positive or not, at least you will not be wasting your time.
