Wisconsin's own Porcupine Literary journal, currently NOT accepting new submissions (how do they replenish their journal, then?!), provides a couple of free short stories online. One short story I read that I really enjoyed was this one.

I actually subscribed to this journal for awhile and always found it full of some really great fiction. If you're interested in buying a couple, back issues are only $5 and the books are usually around a hundred pages in length, or more. WELL worth trying out.
