A new magazine for interactive fiction

Sub-Q is a new magazine that claims to be the first to pay professional rates for interactive fiction. They offer $90 for an original 1,000 interactive short story, and are looking for:

F/SF, horror, mystery, and mash-up interactive fiction.  We like beautiful, moving prose, but we also like pulpy fun! Don’t self-reject. Let us see what you’ve got!

Submitted works must include at least a detailed proposal for interactivity.

According to Boing Boing, the magazine was inspired by the storytelling possibilities of mobile devices like iPads, and by the success of narrative games like 80 Days.
