* M P Ericson's "Lost Soul" (short story, non-genre)

A man is used to abusing his family, & realizes his folly too late, after his wife's death. Set in early twentieth century rural India. Well written, but rather late to the game. The subject has been done to death both by era greats like Premchand & Tagore, as well as thousands of lesser writers.
