Increasing Police Visibility, by Bogi Takács

Lightspeed Magazine, June 2015; 960 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

Extraterrestrials are illegal in Hungary, but the ET detectors have some problems.

This story is NOT available for free online; you have to buy the issue to read it.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The scenes with people denying they're really aliens are amusing. The real alien going undetected at the end is a nice touch. And the technical problem (that you need a super high-precision detector if you're hunting for something rare) is a very real one in many fields.

Con: There's no story here.
