    Exclamation BY as a preposition

    one of the uses of BY

    used to indicate the person responsible for a creative work: this song is by Schubert

    I mean to ask if it is possible to use 'by' with the respective object pronoun e.g. this song is by him, or I don't have any cds by them,

    Thank you.
