Short story

Did you ever get the feeling that the other people in the world around you aren’t real? That you’re the only real person in the world, and everyone else is fake, some kind of zombie or puppet? How would you know? And what would you do if your crazy idea was confirmed?

Silverberg originally titled this story "Puppets without Strings," but editor Paul W. Fairman called it "Call Me Zombie!" It is not a zombie story at all, though the word does appear in it. For the Early Days collection, the original title was used.
