Hello.  I think maybe the inbook or incollection will do this, but this
might not be the  exact solution you're looking for.  When I've been faced
with this problem, I believe I solved it by working around it:

author = "John Locke (ed. Peter Laslett)"

or something of that nature.  I might put it in the title field, depending
on where you want it to end up.

In the hope that this is helpful,
