According to the Real Estalker blog Army has put his 1,600 square foot, 1906 Edwardian cottage on the market for $1.2M and is moving with his husbear-husband Chris Turner to Santa Fe. From the article I learned that Turner had sold his sex site Daddy Hunt. Armistead is only 68 - I thought he was much older. How can he leave SF after so many years there and his identification with Bagdad-by-the-Bay? I hope he's OK health-wise; he has been enormously fat for years and that can't be good for you. The blog said he is writing another book.
Here's something I found via a link in the article:
Armistead Maupin, who on Thursday will be honored with a Silver Cable Card award from San Francisco Travel, leaves town the next day as step one of a move to Santa Fe. Maupin, husband Christopher Turner and their Labradoodle, are driving cross-country to Provincetown, Mass., where they'll spend a chunk of summer, before returning west for a stop at Burning Man before winding up in New Mexico, where they plan to re-settle.
The re-location has "been percolating for a while," he said by phone Monday. Santa Fe "has a different magic from San Francisco, but it has magic, and I need an autumnal adventure." Turner, in the background, wisecracked that the move reflects Maupin's "retirement and my mid-life crisis." But "retirement" isn't really accurate because the author is working on a new "Tales" book, "The Days of Anna Madrigal." He'll be giving a series of readings while they drive cross-country on what they call "the Madrigal Mystery Tour."
The move is "nothing I'm taking lightly," says Maupin. "It's been 41 years since I landed here and it gave me my story. ... I keep reminding myself that Barbary Lane is portable and everything I learned here became part of me and is something I'll always have."
He and Turner are "both craving a little more space and some nature," he said, and the move is "giving us new dreams. There's nothing wrong with that."
