You can also open (press the tag icon in the lower right) the tag browser and simply click on the author, this will enter a prefixed search for you in the search bar.
@book64 - Yes that's another 'correct' way - did we not mention it

Since he is quoting me, it was mentioned:

He might be somehow asking a question about it, but I figure at this point book64 just needs to review the thread and try out the various ways that have been explained in detail.

Of course specific questions are always welcome.

I'd like to add that while searching just by the name is all right, I can't consider it as a good practice in view of the future. In the beginning, with few hundred books, there's no difference, but in a year or two the number will be several thousand and searching several columns is slower than searching just one. Why learn to do something that needs to be unlearned in the future?
Usually I know if the 'Moon' I want is author or title, so I will type author:Moon or title:Moon and get results faster.
