1950's novelette: "Seven Came Back" by Clifford D. Simak
Thanks to the industrious folks at the Internet Archive, you can read online or download “Seven Came Back” (1950), a mirage novelette written by beloved Golden Age SF author Clifford D. Simak and illustrated by elusive pulp artist Arthur Hutah, as it was reprinted in the May 1966 issue of Fantastic science fiction & fantasy magazine.
"So it was, so it must be with the myth that told about the great and glowing city that had stood above all other things of Mars . . . a city that was known to the far ends of the planet."
