Messy / corrupt author sort

I thought Calibre was just really bad at sorting by author name, but I just learned about the author sort field.

It looks like some of the books I have (.epub) have an author sort field with the first name first, others with the last name first, in some it's missing altogether, and I think in a couple it's the name of the person who created the ebook version rather than the actual author.

Is there a way to bulk fix / normalize this field?

right click on any author in the tag browser (the pane to the left) and select manage authors.
