This is not so simple using this approach. You can only do it with one
combined field containing the author and weight, but then you cannot use
NumericRangeQuery and must write more complicated queries by adding a
PositionIncrement/Offset to the terms created and correlate the author and
weight using this in a SpanQuery.

But I understood the question different:
"I want a
query that gives every book document authored by people weighing more than
200lbs, with the ability of doing faceting and the likes."

In this case it is irrelevant which author weights the 200 lbs, there must
be only one, so a NumericRange line
NumericRangeQuery.newFloatRange(field,200.0f,null,true,true) would do it.
