Alas no.

Between the time when Delany planned the diptych and wrote Stars... and it was
published then getting on with the second the AIDS issue hit and Delany said
that his world was so changed by it that he could no longer write the second -
poor memory might not serve but I think it was to be entitled "The Slplendour of
Cities and their Dying" or something bery similar.

Since there has be romour that he started working on it again, but only romour:
I've heard nothing that could taken as reputable news.

It's a great shame as Stars is one of my favorite novels and every time I read
it I regret the lack of a completion.
