TONY and the BEETLES by Philip K. Dick Reddish-yellow sunlight filtered through the thick quartz windows into the sleep-compartment. Tony Rossi yawned, stirred a little, then opened his black eyes and sat up quickly. With one motion he tossed the covers back and slid to the warm metal floor.

As the street lights lit up Hill Street, stores began to close until only the drugstoresone at each end of townremained open. The Luxury movie theater did not open until six-thirty. The ...

The Clerk came walking hurriedly, leafing through his instructions, flipping pages and frowning. He stopped in front of the small green stucco house for a moment, and then turned up the walk, entering the back yard. The dog was asleep inside his shed, his back turned to the world.
