You can't. Unless they've kept a record and are willing to tell you.

Pay Google (or Amazon who own Goodreads) lots of money to Advertise to them?

You probably can't afford it.

After years of praising EPUB format with its oh-so-powerful metadata such small task is still impossible. That figures.

It's interesting that in Overdrive.com, author searchers include those who write the forewords for books. Wish there was an option for searching_for/filtering_by endorsers.

It's got nothing to do with the format - somebody has to create the metadata to load into the database in the first place. So there's a nice little project for you.

Besides - the Stephen King with a little snippet quoted on the cover may not be the author Stephen King.

Oh - do you mean just those books that are in your calibre library?

If you were asking me, nope, I don't want to limit it to just my library.

It probably is. That guy is a blurbing fool.
