Pirates: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology is seeking romantic erotica stories of 2500 to 5000 words that feature 1) pirates, 2) romance, and 3) a bad boy. Your pirates can be on earth or in space or anywhere you care to place them, which means your genres are pretty open. The deadline is May 5, 2017 and payment is $50. You can find the details here.
I was pointed to a magazine called Liberty Island yesterday as a possible market. They accept all genre stories of 1000 to 2000 words. Payment is only by the tip jar that is posted with your story. There is a down side as only stories accepted for the home page get tip jars. Other stories are posted on a space called Open Range where you have to be a member of the site and there is no payment for these. Also the home page is very slow to load. You can find the submission details here.

A Murder of Storytellers has posted an anthology call for "The Misbehaving Dead". They're looking for stories up to 10,000 words using the theme "rebels--the dead that don't stay down". They'll also accept reprints for this one. The deadline is June 13, 2017 and payment is $15 plus a copy. Submissions are through Submittable. You can find the details here.
I've mentioned the new crime Down & Out: The Magazine before but you should be aware that there is also a literary magazine with the title Down & Out so be sure of which market you are submitting to as their links are almost identical.
