Laura Goodin's "I'm Too Loud" (flash fiction, free)

"At one point or another, every woman wonders whether her husband is an alien. The strange smells, the bizarre interests, the dress sense".

A lighthearted & sometimes amusing story of a woman's discovery that her husband is a telepath - can "hear" the thoughts of their unborn boy still inside his mother's womb. Plus the uneasy process of her getting used to living with it.

For Indian readers: Can Abhimanu's learning - while still inside his mother's womb - of the technique to enter chakravyuh, while dad explained the technique to mom, be the original sf story of this class?
