A cataloging problem with some books

Hi everyone.

What's the best way to manage the metadata of those books that don't have a real author but only a document collector? for example, how can the following books be correctly described in the metadata?

- Title: Plato's speeches
???: collected by John Surpace
(John Surpace IS NOT the author, just the collator of the writings)

- Title: Kafka's Epistles to Giselda
???: collected by Francoise Musambé
(again, Musambé is not the author but only the one who collected the writings giving them a certain critical, historical or philological order)

- Title: The philosophical writings of Catherine La Saponaires
???: collected by Viktor Szybalowitch

How do you manage these kinds of books?

I have no such books, but I imagine the best way would be to create a custom column for a collector/editor.

I simply add (ed) after the editor/collector's name in the author field.
