    In order that Google doesn’t waste time on those pages.

    I don’t know if can be negative to “hide” the links to the authors, taking into account that it seems that every day they are more important as a ranking factor.

    Is it within your site or are you leaving the site?

    I would rank them and not worry about Google ‘wasting it’s time’.

    Do you specifically want to stop author pages from indexing? If there’s content, then let it keep its value. I’m sure the authors would appreciate being found under their own names too.
