I ran across this and they appear to be legit. In a new shift for me, they require acceptance to one of their unpaid anthologies before you can participate in the paid anthologies.

I would be very cautious about them until you see a contract and the specific limitations on rights.

In general, with the ease of self-publishing, and the wide availability of online publication, there's not a lot of reason to sub to non-paying markets, especially for digital markets.

I'll take a shot at one of their smaller calls and see what I learn. I'll let you know.
