Hugo-eligible short fiction, Jan-Mar 2015: first take

I wrote a few weeks back of my determination to be a good Hugo nominator next year, and in particular to read the entire 2015 output of those sources which have given me most of my personal first choices in recent years - Tor.com, Clarkesworld, Asimov's, and Subterranean Press - plus also Strange Horizons as I'm a long-term supporter. Once I've established a baseline from those five sources, I'll look around what other people are recommending as well; there should be time enough for that.
