He's a professional controversialist, not a professional atheist; I don't know if he's written others on this topic.
You can read three extracts from it here:

He does like to be controversial. But he writes far better than Richard Dawkins who always sounds to me like the subject bothers him too much.

Can't agree with NJOK. If you want to see religious belief taken into little pieces using nothing but fact, evidence, impeccable reasoning, commonsense and great style then read Dawkins' "The God Delusion". Dawkins is nothing like as bad-tempered as Hitchens, though they are both absolutely right.
