As to my ID, I retract Vonda and suggest Varley, "Equinoctial" from Picnic on Nearside.
That could be - isn't that one about the human-alien composite beings that live in space (in vacuum), near Saturn?

I looked up some MacIntyre too - "Metaphase" http://www.amazon.com/Metaphase-Vond...1010745&sr=1-4 might fit the original description better.
