"Authors beginning with Z." I would greatly prefer to see the actual names on the left.

When I click on an entry like "Authors beginning with A," the window on the right gives me a lot more than just the author names. I also see titles and series. There, or somewhere, I would like to see just the author names.

I don't mean to suggest there is anything wrong with the authors, series, and titles being shown together on the right. I guess what I'd like to suggest is the ability, somewhere, to see a list of the author names and nothing more, with the ability to view an author's works by clicking on the author's name. Am I missing something?
Go read the Help pages (CLI section) on: calibredb.exe list
You can have as much or little as you want in a simple 'list' (text or CSV) file
