The Silent Destroyer by Henri Dahl Juve:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
"In presenting this extraordinary story to our
readers, we make a prediction and state, that
it is without a shadow of a doubt scheduled to
become a classic in aviation fiction. There is
enough science contained in this single story to
provide sufficient ammunition for a dozen
others, which will give the reader an idea of
the tremendous wealth of science contained in
Five hundred years hence, the conditions
and instrumentalities used by the author in this
story will probably become part of our world.
In any event, the story gives us as accurate a
prelude to the future as it is possible for a
trained scientist to give. And with the skill of
a magician, he weaves the incidents so that the
final climax of the story is so subtle, that it
leaves one chuckling. Particularly is this story
recommended to those of us who are used to,
and must live among, irritating noises during
their entire lives."
