It is worth pointing out that when you click on the heading of the Authors column in the Calibre GUI, the sort is actually done using the value of the author_sort column. By default the author_sort column is not shown in the GUI tabular view (the value it holds IS visible in the Edit Metadata dialogs) although it can be made visible in a column via Calibre's preferences settings.
