"I've Got to Get Away" is a short-story included in the 1960 self-published magazine People, Places and Things.

The story concerns a worker who wakies up but remembers nothing, not even his name. Shocked, he realizes that he's operating a conveyor belt and knows only one thing: he's got to get away. But he is immediately arrested by guards who reprogram him – for the dreamer is nothing but a faulty robot who seems to lapse into humanhood from time to time.
