  TSR vs Mayfair Games
Mayfair used the Gygax statement in the text of a flyer promoting Invincible overlord, and it used the AD & D trademark again at the bottom of the flyer to identify AD & D as a registered trademark of TSR (P-D P 47).
Mayfair contends that TSR did not complain of Mayfair's use of the Dragon Magazine statement until the current motion for partial summary judgment was filed in June 1992 (D. 12(m) P 43).
Absent Mayfair's joinder in AD & D's prayer for rescission, it is assumed here that Mayfair is willing to continue to live with the specific ground rules set out in the Agreement, rather than having both parties relegated to the principles of law (such as fair use) that would apply in the absence of contract.

In this engrossing and hypnotic tale of witchcraft and the occult spanning four centuries, we meet a great dynasty of witches--a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive being.
Each generation of the "Mayfair Witches" there was a chosen female that 'inherited' the man, and he brought power, he brought madness.
When she moves the tale of the Mayfair witches into the past and traces each generation of witch from early Scotland on, she is breathtaking.

She is first introduced in the novel The Witching Hour, by author Anne Rice, which takes place in the series Lives of the Mayfair Witches.
Rowan is the culmination of centuries of manipulation of the Mayfair bloodline, often by means of incest and the addition of other people in possession of 'magical' or psychic abilities, by the spirit Lasher, sometimes referred to as 'the man' by family members who have encountered him and those familiar with the family legend.

The story moves from a modern-day tale of a young woman, a doctor with a "gift," the end product of centuries of witches who are under control of Lasher (called so because he can make the trees lash when he's angry), then into the past of her ancestors.
In each generation of the "Mayfair witches," there was a chosen female who inherited Lasher, and he brought power and riches; he brought madness.
When she moves the tale of the Mayfair witches into the past and traces each generation of witch from early Scotland on, the prose is breathtaking.

 Amazon.com: Lasher (Lives of the Mayfair Witches): Books: Anne Rice   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
For myself the downfall of the Mayfair Witch series isn't in the prose which is every bit as seductive as ever, it is that the characters became distasteful.
Knowing that a Taltos can be born only to another Taltos or to a witch (defined by a man or woman with a unique number of chromosomes; an example of Rice's imaginative blending of science and the supernatural), Lasher seeks to impregnate Rowan as well as several other women in the Mayfair family.
Though I enjoyed "The Witching Hour" more, "Lasher" is a strong follow-up, and I particularly enjoyed the reappearances of the Talamasca throughout history, and the hints that its motto: "watch and wait" is not as passive as it has previously seen.

As she grows, Merrick develops and hones a power over life and death, but, unable to render herself immortal, falls in with Lestat who is reluctant to turn her into a vampire for fear of repeating the debacle with the 7-year-old Claudia (from INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE).
David Talbot, an adventurer, near-mortal vampire, and visitor from another dark realm, narrates the haunting saga of Merrick, a beautiful, unconquerable witch who is a descendant of the Mayfair witches--from whom she inherits her magical gifts--and of a mixed African and French background that is steeped in the shadowy traditions and lore of voodoo.
Merrick details the story of Merrick Mayfair, a member of the Talamasca and a witch of mixed races who is descended from the same family in Rice's Mayfair Witches.

I just wanted to say i personally love the novels by Anne Rice, and i really liked the Interview With the Vampire film, however i do think that Queen of the Damned was a let down it missed out alot of the storya and i felt it didnt do it justice.
The complicated relationships adn the confusing family tree is one of the best parts of the story, onces you figure them out in the books, the Mayfairs become a real family that you love.
