### citet giving blank author!

Hi All

I'm writing a document, and using natbib to make a bibliographic reference with the author's name using \citet. Unfortunately, it seems to be returning a blank for author.

Here's a minimal working example:
\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report} \usepackage[numbers]{natbib}\bibliographystyle{unsrt} \begin{document} Following \citet{SEWTHA} we will evaluate everything in terms of etc. \bibliography{MWEsus} \end{document}

with MWEsus.bib as follows:
@BOOK{SEWTHA,author = {MacKay, David J. C.},title={Sustainable Energy -- without the hot air},year={2008},publisher={UIT Cambridge},note={ISBN 978-0-9544529-3-3. Available free online from www.withouthotair.com},}

The pdf is a single line with:
"Following [1] we will evaluate everything in terms of etc."

I'm using Ubuntu and Texmaker. There's no errors either in the pdflatex or the bibtex running. And if I do a normal dvi producing run, the same omission occurs.

For some reason it returns a blank space for author. Anyone have any idea why?! Or where I could look for help.

Many thanks

Hi,

replace

\bibliographystyle{unsrt}

with

\bibliographystyle{unsrtnat}
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,...
