The article reports that Scott Adams' "The Religion War" hits e-book bestseller list. The Religion War, the sequel to Dilbert creator Scott Adams' first novel, "God's Debris," was published last month in hardcover by Andrews McMeel. But Adams retained the e-book rights, and is publishing the electronic version of the title himself. The e-book was No. 2 on the Open E-Book Forum (OEBF) monthly ranking of e-books. The title has had a fairly consistent presence on most rankings of e-book bestsellers since its debut, and the marketing of The Religion War through Adams' Dilbert newsletter and Web site helped bring the e-book to No.1 on November's OEBF list.
