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 it.

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."
