One of Goodis's novels is a novelisation of an unproduced script he wrote. I forget which one. One of those beginning with 'Of', I think.

All the talk of Charles Williams' abundant talent is great to hear, and I completely agree. Malcolm Braly is up there too. As is David Karp.

  It's not hb, and likely as not somebody on this thread
  somewhere has already said it, but Ian Fleming's
  THUNDERBALL is a novelization of the script and I
  think it's much better than the movie.
