Winner of the British Science Fiction Association Award for best short fiction.
Set in the world of Anne Charnock’s novel A Calculated Life – shortlisted for the Philip K. Dick and Kitschies Golden Tentacle Awards – The Enclave reveals life at the bottom of the heap in late twenty-first century Britain.
Advances in genetic engineering have created a population free of addictive behaviour. Violent crime is rare. But out in the enclaves it’s survival of the fittest for Lexie – embroiled in a recycling clan and judged unfit for cognitive implants – and Caleb, a young climate migrant working as an illegal, who is eager to prosper and one day find his father.
The Enclave is a standalone novella. A must-read for any fan of the acclaimed novel A Calculated Life.

political bent." – Speculation.
