Hebdomeros is an extended prose piece by the Surrealist artist Giorgio de Chirico, a painter best known for his dark and desolate paintings of sterile town squares devoid of human beings. This novel for want of a better word was written in , several years after the muse of painting had abandoned de Chirico. While this characterization is not inaccurate, it should also be noted that there is a certain absurdist - comic, even — quality to Hebdomeros that is lacking in those brooding gothic antiheroes, and might even seem to be a parody of the idealized overman. It should be noted that de Chirico was an admirer of Nietzsche. But there is also a similarity with the William Gibson story of several years back, which was marketed on a CD-ROM designed to melt into oblivion soon after it had been read.
