James Wesley Rawles originally wrote the first novel in the series in 1990. It was 19 chapters long and he distributed it as shareware, calling it The Gray Nineties. It was expanded to 27 chapters and renamed Triple Ought. He revised it again, adding six more chapters (bringing it to 33 chapters) and re-titling it TEOTWAWKI: The End of the World as We Know It. The novel was purchased by Hunting House Publishers in 1997, who edited it down to 31 chapters and giving it the title Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse. The novel was officially published for the first time ever in 1998. Since then, the two additional chapters have been restored and the novel is now available in its complete form. It was published in 1998. The series is currently ongoing.
