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.

The warriors of dawn by M. A Foster( Book )

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

3 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and German and held by 49 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 Morphodite was a genetically constructed genius who had turned the tables on the police state that had created it. Settled down to a man's quiet life, he contemplated a lifetime of doing good in a liberated world...until a vengeance squad wiped out that hope. Now, again utilizing that unique talent, the young woman who was now the Morphodite, realized that the job could not be finished until the enemies of that planet's society were tracked to their interstellar lair and blasted. Across the planet she went and finally into outer space in a city-sized starship to a final showdown somewhere between the worlds". --
