What if education could be extended into the womb? Would we get brilliant, well-balanced babies? Monsters? Or a frightening/hopeful combination of both?

Chilling and plausible and under option to be made a feature film, Dr. Pak's Preschool explores the bright and very dark possibilities when science meddles in the most intimate human act - bearing and delivering a child.

This short story originally appeared as a limited edition chapbook before being reprinted in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, July 1990. A more affordable chapbook edition appeared in 1992. The story is also included in the collection Otherness (1994).
