CommuterLit seeks submissions for anthology and for daily publication, Bastion pays for science fiction, and Black Heart wants short fiction

CommuterLit seeks submissions for its new print anthology. The theme is “Arrivals and Departures.” Let your imaginations roam. “We’re looking for poetry, stories and memoir with a maximum length of 2,500 words.”
 Authors whose work is accepted for the anthology will be compensated via a cut from the sales. Submit through the regular CommuterLit General Submission channel; but mention in your letter you are submitting for the print anthology: here.
Deadline: April 21, 2014. More here.
CommuterLit also continues to accept submissions for daily on-line publication. They accept short stories, novel excerpts and poetry (one poem or a series of poems), in any genre, with a word count of 500 to 4,000. On occasion CommuterLit will run stories and excerpts up to 12,000 words in length, serializing the story and running it over a number of days. 
Submit here. Full submission guidelines here

Bastion is a new science fiction magazine publishing digitally on the first of every month. With the first issue coming out April 1, 2014. Each issue will contain 8 to 10 original short stories. Our yearly anthology will be available in both digital and print formats in early December.
Payment: $20 for the first 2,000 words then $0.01 for each word thereafter, up to a maximum of $50 per story.
Submissions: Bastion seeks great science fiction. How you choose to meet this requirement is up to you. Consider that science fiction is merely a backdrop from which outstanding stories are written. Horror, detective, and thrillers are all acceptable as long as there's some element of science fiction present (no romance or erotica). No serials, fan fiction, or anything unoriginal, please. Your story should stand on its own.
Length: 1,000 to 5,000 words. 
Deadline: Ongoing. Full submission guidelines here.

Independent online journal Black Heart Magazine (U.S) seeks short fiction for its weekday (M-F) publication cycle. Length: 1,500 words max. All genres accepted, with a literary angle preferred. Appreciates short-form modern literature, from pulp to literary fiction and everything in-between.
Deadline: Ongoing. Guidelines here.
