To the totalitarian state of Oerlikon change is the most fearsome enemy, so a secret weapon was created to preserve the status quo: the Morphodite.

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thomas Szaz wrote about deciphering and entering the world of the schizophrenic to establish the bridge back to health. Foster creates the bridge to the beyond human in a way that takes the reader into the other almost without our being aware. There's a seqence in Zan that is almost a dream state which captured me - took me in. Zan - the tale of the near human leaving earth to find freedom. The Warriors of Dawn carries on centuries later with a love story between human and near human. And Klesh, centuries later still, with the convergence of minds bringing the history together in an unimagined fashion

The warriors of dawn by M. A Foster ( Book )
3 editions published between 1975 and 1979 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The human race had divided into two species. One had created the other-- normal humans had experimented in forced evolution and had produced the ler, a sort of superman race, but pacifistic and contemplative. The ler fled from the turbulent worlds of homo sapiens and established their own quiet planetary colonies. Which made it all the more inexplicable when reports came in of fierce planetary marauders, looting and burning, who were of ler ancestry. The existence of barbarian lers was a contradiction in terms. And the search for their reasons for existence was to take a human male and a ler female into an expedition into strange worlds and the unsuspected bypasses of all the systems of science and philosophy
