In particular I'm thinking of more obscure properties that might likely be available for option rather than the latest John Grisham.

*********** I took a quick look at the bookshelf last night and came up with MOONY'S ROAD TO HELL, IGUANA LOVE, and GOD IS A BULLET. But probably the number one ready-for-the-silver-screen is Terrill Lankford's SHOOTERS. It's got it all. Hot, steamy sex, a shadowy past, seedy characters, hip Hollywood parties, and a tense, desperate struggle against a frame-up. Written by a talented and experienced Hollywood screenwriter, what else would you expect?

I am sorry about your wife, Jim. My thoughts are with you and her.
