Reading list: Scientology

In March 2011 at the Independent Gillian Orr came up with a brief reading list about Scientology.

One title on the list:
Battlefield Earth by L Ron Hubbard

Before Scientology, Hubbard was a celebrated pulp sci-fi author, publishing dozens of novels. He mainly gave up writing in the Fifties, but in 1982, he published Battlefield Earth. Set 1,000 years in the future, when Earth is ruled by an alien race, a film adaptation starring Hollywood Scientologist John Travolta was made in 2000 and is widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made.
Read about the other books on the list.
