      Perhaps they don't count, since they are technically prequels, but
      Sophocles wrote _Oedipus the King_ and _Oedipus at Colonus_ after he wrote
      _Antigone_ (by general acceptance of Aristotle's evaluation, _Oedipus the
      King_ is greater than _Antigone_). Also, if we're including sequels by
      other hands, Ariosto's _Orlando Furioso_ is a sequel to Boiardo's _Orlando
      Innamorato_. --Joe
