Hit by another tsunami of bad press, this time over the May publication of Ron Miscavige's bestselling book Ruthless, Ron's son, Scientology leader David Miscavige, is hitting back with his own grab for media attention — by bringing out a 34-year-old science fiction novel, L. Ron Hubbard's Battlefield Earth.

Yesterday, Hubbard's literary agency Author Services Inc — staffed only by Scientologists — held a book launch event outside its building on Hollywood Boulevard that featured a crashed spaceship, characters from the novel, and even a band of soldiers in Scottish gear (it's in the book).
