Monday Markets - Fantastic Stories of the Imagination (via @Fantastic_Mag)

Fantastic Stories of the Imagination Magazine is looking for SF and Fantasy fiction:

I’m looking for stories that cover the entire science fiction and fantasy spectrum. I love magic realism (think Tim Powers and Neil Gaiman) and hard sf (think Allen Steele). I want a story to surprise me and to take me to unexpected places. I love word play, and would like to see stories with a literary bent, though decidedly not a pretentious bent (think Roger Zelazny). I could spend some time telling you what I don’t want, but I’ve found that good stories can make me buy them regardless of how many of my rules they violate. Let your imagination run wild, push and blur the limits of genre, or send me something traditional. I want it to see it all.

Payment is an amazing 15c per word for stories (up to $500) and a $25 flat fee for reprints, and they have a rapid turnaround, so get to submitting your best work.
