I would try opening that book on your PC, Mac or laptop with calibre and see name shows up there too.  If it does it just means that the name of the author is added to the book and you will have to edit it to get rid off it.

If it's a epub you would have to download Sigil, and use that to edit the book.  There is a search function within Sigil, which will allow you to find the author's name and delete it if you think it's neccessary.

Well, You can clean up your Book Using Sigil.
Download and Install It From The Official website From You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

After Installing Open The Book You Want To Edit In Sigil.(Using File and Open or CTRL + O)
After That Go To Search Tab and From There Go To Find And Replace (Ctrl + F is Keyboard shortcut).
In The Bottom Centre Position You'll Find Something like as in attached Pic.

Put what you want to search in The First Line and what you want as replacement in second line(in your case it'll blank )
and click replace all.

Oh, ninjumper has beaten to the ball.  But, yeah that is the way to do it.  It is very easy to learn how to edit books using Sigil, I've done it many a times with some books.  And I didn't even need to read the how to guide by Jessadia.  ;D

If they appear at the end of every chapter on Sigil, then you would have to just delete them the same way as you did with the author's name.  But with greater care as some of those numbers maybe relavant to the story.

Thanks for the Sigil info. I have a few PDF books that might be helped with the software.
Let all those believe, believe.  Let all those doubt, doubt.

Ooooo, look at Bookie showing off her big brain  :D  Yeah, that is true but if the PDF you are converting has allot of pictures in it then the format of the ePub may end up being skewed all over the place.

I tried Sigil once or twice. Never get to understand it. :D :D I'll just ignore the name of the author then. lmao. or wait for a clean copy. :P

But most of the time, when you convert PDF to EPUB, it turns out like crap. LOL. Sometimes, that is why you have those author names in the middle of the book. When you convert PDF to EPUB and/or MOBI. So stick to EPUB or MOBI. :P

I keep saying... PDF IS FIXED.  That means it does not convert to other formats well.  It's like converting a picture of your favorite movie start to text.  It's not going to be a pretty result.

Much easier to go from other formats to PDF.    I never download a PDF when I purchase a book [I won't buy a book if it is only in PDF] or get it from the library. It renders it useless so if I need to convert for my ereader I can't.  I can only read in PDFlite [A light Adobe type program using little memory] or on my ereader which handles PDFs [useless if I buy one that doesn't handle PDFs]
