Are you following AACR II?
Under 21.26A there should be two entries.
The main entry, formed per 22.14A should be *Kilgour, Fredrick G. (Spirit)
There should also be an added entry, formed under the general rules of 22.1,
of *Spero, Simon*
Since the planet does use inverted order, but also combines multiple entries
into a single main entry (e.g. "*Powell, Andy and Johnston, Pete*"),
perhaps the appropriate form should be:
*Kilgour, Fredrick G. (Spirit) / through the hand of Spero, Simon *
 Yes, this is a real rule! Nancy Babb wrote an
paper exploring how this rule came to be, and how it sheds light on
the evolution of cataloging rules and the theories behind them.
