The Crawlers is a delightfully creepy short story from Philip K. Dick.

One of the ubiquitous themes in Dick’s work is shifting perceptions and unsettled realities. In the tradition of Beyond Lies the Wub and Piper in the Woods, The Crawlers is a work that explores the often-fleeting ideas about right and wrong and what it means to be human.
