Try this simple one for the ones to be added:
(?P<title>.+) - (?P<author>[^_]+)
It should work for both, but you need to turn on the swap author FN LN option for the second group. (I assume you want to keep the "a novel" in the title.)
For those that are already in, you'll need to provide more info about what field they are in.
