Planet Stories 57 - Jack O'Sullivan

Pretty solid for its age, this one. In fact, the first story does have a little of the Brackett/Moore feel, at times. So the start and the end are the places to look, for that and the real thing.

The middle isn't too bad, either, including someone who is much more famous as a crime writer.

An Earthman on Mercury stumbles into a long lost colony in a hidden air-filled valley, ruled by harsh Sunstone wielding hawk controlling lords - and, of course, an alien overlord behind them.
