The Midnight Diner - Call for Submissions

Now this looks like an interesting new market.  While The Midnight Diner has been around for a while as an annual print anthology, they are now switching to a quarterly online.  They're looking for hard-boiled fiction with a christian slant.  Don't let that scare you away.  They clarify that "pansy, sanitized work will be unceremoniously dismissed".  In other words if your gangbanger say something like, "Gollygee, Beav, what ever are we going to do with this swell crack?", you're not going to get published.  They're currently open for submissions until sometime in November for short stories of 3000 to 6000 words.  They have a variety of genres listed.  Payment is currently up in the air as to amount.  They are running an Indiegogo fund raiser and hope to be able to pay pro rates.  You can check them out here.
