Using LINQ to remove elements from a List

Say that I have LINQ query such as:

var authors = from x in authorsList
              where x.firstname == "Bob"
              select x;

Given that authorsList is of type List, how can I delete the Author elements from authorsList that are returned by the query into authors?

Or, put another way, how can I delete all of the firstname’s equalling Bob from authorsList?

Note: This is a simplified example for the purposes of the question.

Actually, it is a closer duplicate of:

This is the code I’m using, but its not very readable. Can I use LINQ to shorten the code below while still having the same functionality?

int index = 0;
int pos = 0;

foreach (var x in HomeViewModel.RecentPatients)
   if (x.PID == p.PID)
       pos = index;
