Writers of the Future XXIII
After seven posthumans try to kill their space enemy that ignores them, a black hole forces the Span to retreat, stranding the narrator live on the distant planet, Beach Glass. He has to learn how to survive. He comes to see his survival, working with his hands instead of directing the Span, as being more important to life.
A good metaphor for how we sometimes think our virtual internet lives are more important than our real ones.
