Cover to “Weird Tales,” W. H. Silvey, May 1954

“Song in the Thicket” by Manly Banister.  Cover art by W. H. Silvey.

Yes, “Manly Banister” is indeed the author’s name.  He appears to have had several, so it’s a good bet this was a nom de plume.  (For comparison, his other names include “Gregg Powers” and, curiously, “Val Seanne.”)

Google him.  He … actually published a hell of a lot between 1942 and 1980.
