Explosion Rocks the Glebe

Once upon a time, I used to run a science fiction and fantasy bookstore in the Glebe called Basilisk Dreams Books. (You can't find anything on the interweb, at least nothing that I've been able to locate graphically about the store any longer.) The bookstore was at 857B Bank Street, near 5th Avenue.

Last night, there was an explosion in the Glebe that devastated the entire block where the bookstore used to be.

Glebe Explosion and Fire

Terrible, terrible news. My condolences to the people who owned those businesses, people who were in the area who were injured, and the hardships that this will cause.
