"The Unreachable Voices of Ghosts" by Jeffrey Lyman

Appeared in Writers of the Future 27

Max Getty speeds away from Earth on one of many sail-ships out beyond the Kuiper Belt, hunting baby black holes in a search for energy for transportation to the stars.  When his water reclamation unit goes out of whack, Maureen in a different ship walks him through the process.  They become friends, perhaps more.  They kept getting further until they approach the radius of no return.  When Max finds a baby hole, he wants to share it with Maureen.  Can he reach yet make it back in time to live on Earth?
