What I really want is a way to get an easy overview, basically having the authors being collections emulate folders with each authors books in them.
If you want to create Sony Collections by author, I believe all you need to do is:
- go to Preferences - Sending books to device. In the box labelled Metadata management set it to Automatic management
- go to Preferences - Plugins - Device Interface - Sony - Customize. Then find the box with a long label starting 'Comma separated list of metadata...'. The default is series, tags (I think), set it to authors
- Connect your device to Calibre, let it do its stuff then disconnect. All the Collections should be there.
By the way, Calibre also has other goodies specific to auto-managing Sony devices, e.g. thumbnails, title renaming
