1 Foster, M. A.The Morphodite. 33659
Daw Books: NY. 1981.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Daw 460. SF novel: ''the genetic time-bomb person'', first in a trilogy.

''The Morphodite/Transformer trilogy comprises THE MORPHODITE (1981), Transformer (1983) and Preserver (1985), and similarly uses forms of meditative shapeshifting to buttress complex plots, though in this case the alternately male or female, revolution-fomenting, protagonist dominates the tale as assassin, trickster and Superman. The narrative diction is intermittently reminiscent of Jack Vance'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).


Fine (as new) copy.

2 Foster, M. A.The Warriors Of Dawn. 33661
Daw Books: NY. 1975.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Paperback original.
Daw 135. SF novel, third in a trilogy.

''he began to publish sf with the ambitious Ler trilogy about a race of Supermen created by Genetic Engineering whose social structure is built around a form of line marriage here called a braid. The Gameplayers of Zan (1977), a very long novel formally constructed on the model of an Elizabethan tragedy, describes a period of climactic tension between the ler and the rest of humanity, and is set on Earth. THE WARRIORS OF DAWN (1975), published first but set later, is a more conventional Space Opera in which a human male and a ler female are forced to team up to try to solve a complexly ramifying problem of interstellar piracy. The Day of the Klesh (1979) brings the ler and the eponymous race of humans together on a planet where they must solve their differences. The books are slow in the telling, but impressively detailed in their construction of ler culture and language'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd printing).
