grand old monsters

So that subgenre of odd, melancholy little SF short stories that revolve around the concept that spacers will not be like normal people any more, nor able to relate to them (I'm thinking of stories like "Scanners Live In Vain," "Aye, and Gomorrah," and John Varley's "The Pusher") --can anybody think of some more of those, in a similar vein?

It was sort of a fertile vein of genre allegory for a long time, and I haven't seen one in a while.
