Short Stories Anyone?

There's a kerfuffle going on in the SF side of the SFF world about short story pay rates. It's easy to find if you're interested. The question is raised for me, tho, is whither the urban fantasy short story market?

Obviously, there are anthologies out there--several FFF members are in some very cool collections. I like these conceptually.

What I don't know is, is there a website/magazine venue to get your uf shorts jollies? I know ostensively something like The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and Realms of Fantasy and maybe ClarkesWorld are outlets, but I've never perceived them as go-to places for uf/paranormal shorts. Is there one?

disclaimer: I'm not a short story writer and this isn't an attempt to get people to do my homework. I'm interested as a reader and curious from a market standpoint. I know there are websites and blogs out there, but are there so-called "majors?" You know, like when you tell me, I'm gonna feel stoopid for not thinking of them. :)
