Zoetic Press (US) is exploring new forms of digital books. Currently, it’s issuing new editions of Alice in Wonderland and Pride and Prejudice, with more works to come. Each work will become an e-book anthology, incorporating alternative narratives, critical commentary, additional stories, etc. Because it will appear in-line with the text, submitted stories do not need to stand alone to be considered.
In addition, Zoetic Press is reading fiction, non-fiction and poetry that takes advantage of the Lithomobilus e-reader platform. New, experimental, hybrid works that feature non-linear navigation and user-directed reading experiences are particularly encouraged. 
Submission guidelines here.
NonBinary Review, the quarterly literary publication of Zoetic Press, wants art and literature that tiptoes the tightrope between now and then, makes readers reach for a dictionary or a tissue or both. Poetry, fiction, nonfiction, hybrid, art. Upcoming issues: Issue #2 (September 2014): Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Issue #3 (December 2014): L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz. 
Authors and artists should state in their cover letters for which issue their submission is intended. Submissions not related to an upcoming issue's theme will be deleted unread. Pays 1 cent per word for prose/hybrid work, $10 flat fee per poem, and $25 flat fee for art.
Submission guidelines here. No deadlines given, but for the September issue, I’d send in your piece as soon as possible.
