[BKARTS] Epi - prologue



Hello all,

A friend of mine is producing a book in which he will
be including a written piece at the end of the book
that will refer to events that took place before the
beginning of the book. In movie terms, this might be
called a prequel. What would this be called in book
terms?

He definitely wants it at the end of the book so it
wouldn't be a prologue. Does an epilogue only describe
events after those which are in the book? Or does it
describe any written words that happen to come after
the main piece? Or is there a completely different
literary term for this device?

Thanks,
