Longshot Island is an online quarterly ezine that is looking for short stories of 1000 to 7000 words in any genre but be aware that they're looking for stories in a literary frame.  They do accept reprints.  Now, if your story is accepted it's published online then the best of the stories from that quarter is published in print with an annual anthology of the best from the print magazine.  You are paid 1cent a word if your story is selected for print only.  You can find the details here.  There are stories onsite for you to read to get a feel for what they're publishing.

I sold a story to Longshot Island, but have no record of ever being paid. And to be honest, I have no memory of submitting the story. I may have been drunk.

Use caution when drinking and typing. Maybe the story is somewhere in Long Island, New York.
(just kidding)

Well, they definitely published it; I just don't recall submitting it.

Anyway, it's an interesting, eclectic magazine.

Drinking and submitting sounds a bit like drinking and dating, Manuel, you tend to forget what you've done :)
