Alis Smile: Naked Scientology is a collection of essays and a short story by American Beat writer William S. Burroughs (1914-97). First published in 1971 as the short story Alis Smile, the book eventually contained a group of previously published newspaper articles as well, all of which address Scientology.

Burroughs had been interested in Scientology throughout the 1960s, believing that its methods might help combat a controlling society. He joined the Church of Scientology later in the decade. However, he became disenchanted with the authoritarian nature of the organization. In 1970 Burroughs had published a considered statement on Scientologys methods because he felt they were significant enough to warrant commentary.

These pieces were later gathered together into Alis Smile: Naked Scientology, which religious studies scholar Hugh Urban describes as a nonscholarly popular expos of Scientology. Burroughss texts argue that while some of Scientologys therapies are worthwhile, the dogmatic nature of the group and its secrecy are harmful.
