Adbusters is a mag with a lot of pep and a distinct voice. They claim to 'relish all truly political materials'. They accept different formats - video, audio, short flash, and will consider almost anything, including fiction, as long as it flows with their mission to change global perspective on consumer culture. If your story packs an ecological whollap, or lets activists take over the world, this is the place for you. One caution: response time is slow.
Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine does not require querying, you can send a completed manuscript and they will read it. Pretty much every mystery genre is considered, but they prefer stories that are less than 12,000 words. This one has to be done by snail mail, no electronic submissions allowed.

They will buy poetry, which pays $1 per line, and should not exceed 40 lines. Will accept work from unpublished authors.
The Atlanticis another snail mail deal, but a fantastic addition to your portfolio if your story is accepted and printed in their special newstand magazine. Atlantic will consider unsolicited manuscripts (bonus!), and suggest that you read back issues to get a flavour of how and what to write, and keep your prose to between 2,000 and 6,000 words.
AustinMama works primarily but not exclusively, with local Austin writers. According to the guidelines, risky fiction makes Mama feel fine, and she'd like to see it. This publication prefers to work with experienced writers, and buys one-time purchasing and archiving rights. Payment is $35 to $50.
