Angel Towers

Imagine cities full of science-fictional angelic souls, living lives connected in a cosmic Matrix, all under the absolute control of an omnipresent God who expects souls to thank Him for every favorable occasion and pray for His help in every adverse circumstance. There are millions of inhabited planets out there where material life has been subsumed into virtual worlds, which will last until the end of the Universe. Apocalyptic religion has been going on for millennia, but now we have the Internet and Photoshop to give it vivid representation. Put on your Google Glass and you, too, can link in and be an electronic angel.

Well, as you know, this reminds me of the older, utopian sci fi's. Especially cause of the clean colors, the whites and bright blues. The architecture reminds me of that, too, Impossibly tall buildings. I have always liked such covers, cause they are easy on the eye, they draw you in. They are very non-threatening. So much sci fi art now is distopian, un-inviting.
