o.m.g Ray Bradbury! His The Martian Chronicles is just pure awesome, a whole series of hauntingly gorgeous short stories re settlers on Mars living amidst the decaying remnants of a once magnificent indigenous Martian race.
Bradbury was a multiple Leo – Sun, Mercury, Jupiter & Neptune – fabulously uber creative. He inspired SO many peeps and was amazingly influential. If you haven’t read The Martian Chronicles and you’re in a sci-fi frame of mind, do it.
