Voices from the Hellmouth is a series of posts on Slashdot headed up by Jon Katz.

Following the Columbine tragedy and the media coverage it received, there was a witch hunt for kids that didn't fit in. Many of these kids wrote into Jon with their stories about how they were mistreated at their high school by the "popular" kids. Jon made the series available on Slashdot in a series of posts, and later released a paperback book to reach a broader audience. The profits were donated to charity.

Many Slashdot posters didn't like the idea of their comments being used in a commercial product, but the controversy eventually died down. No names were used in the book. It retails for $14.95.
