“For me, part of the original and primary purpose of science fiction was to project oneself into the city of the future. Sultan’s cityscape captures the fizzing excitement of the soaring city, the city from which one sees only more city in all directions, the city of motion, of disrespect for gravity, of sleek and rapid movement, of a million stories unfolding at once. It captures the excitement of the technological future.” --Daniel Maidman
