Bulk edit of Author Field

I imported a lot of books recently, and the Author field now contains a lot of entries that are LN, FN.

Is it possible to edit these in bulk to convert the entries to FN LN?

Get the Quality Check Plugin.
'Fix' has a configurable function to set these (including periods) to your choice
