WORKING STIFFS by Scott Bell Latest Science Fiction Release by Driven Press

A world on the edge of financial ruin, nanotechnology bringing back the recently dead, but not as they were . . . and Joe Warren, an unemployed college dropout, thrust right in the middle of the government and a bunch of freedom fighters.

RICHARDSON, Texas - March 21, 2017 - Amzeal -- Driven Press is proud to announce the publication of WORKING STIFFS, a pre-dystopian science fiction novel that has been described by a LibraryThing Early Reviewer as "one of those books you can't put down. Well written, great characters and fantastic plot. Highly recommended!"


At a time when civil liberties have been eroded and unemployment has exceeded Great Depression levels, nanotechnology provides the ability to reanimate the recently dead. Far from zombies, but nothing like their former selves, "Revivants" are a ready source of cheap labor able to perform simple, routine tasks. Great news for some sectors, but for many, the economic and social impact is devastating.

Enter Joe Warren — an unemployed college dropout, who is self-absorbed and disinterested in the world's problems. All Joe wants is a job, food on his table, and a cure for his girlfriend's lingering illness. What Joe gets is a stint in jail with a bunch of self-proclaimed freedom fighters, and coerced to become an informant by federal government agents.

Joe is forced to examine his me-first attitude, and in the process learns that some things just might be worth fighting — or dying — for.
