That isn't unusual. It cost 25 to enter the CWA Debut Dagger. Like the Crime Writers Association, Mslexia is a prestigious credit to have on your CV.

CaoPaux put them in a giant list (http://absolutewrite.net/forums/showthread.php?t=792) of good publishers. It's a 2005 post, but last updated 07-19-2011. Yog's law doesn't apply to contests. The Hemingway contest and the big Azimov contest charge a fee too, if memory serves.

Thanks for this! I've just entered my novel just in case it's any good!

FWIW, the 'rule' on contests with entry fees is that the legitimate ones pay at least 100 times the entry fee. This one pays 200 times the fee.
