Writers of the Future XXIV
Owen Landover was mortally injured after a pair of blasts give him severe damage. However, he manages to inject some nanos that repair him. Meanwhile, the nanobes appear to also be attempting to take control of his body as well, formulating strange questions and demands. They want more than Owen can give.
A transcendent story suggesting those who seem to have less may have more. Nano sentience may be dubious, but still worth reading.
