This article is poorly composed both in grammar and content. I have not read this book and so I found myself having difficult trying to make any changes to the article. I have edited a few things which are deficient only in grammar, but as to the content I am wary to rearrange any of the information. Paragraph 2 should be the introductory paragraph, while paragraph 1 should follow it.
A suggestion might be to include merely the book's preview, with some possible elaboration or expansion of some details:
“Endymion Spring” is the to Matthew Skelton’s debut novel. It starts off in medieval Mainz, in the Gutenberg era (the 1450s). A printer’s apprentice finds a strange book with clasps fashioned in the form of snakeheads. Trouble is, the fangs are rumoured to be poisoned… The apprentice can’t resist touching the book, the fangs do indeed prick his fingers, and the book opens to reveal a secret that will endure for over 500 years, until another boy stumbles upon it. Blake is visiting an Oxford college library with his academic mother and younger sister. Finding the library oppressive, Blake runs his fingers along the dusty shelves, and his fingers are pricked by the same fangs… The ancient book responsible is entitled “Endymion Spring”: although it has no words, the texture of the pages seem alive with what looks like veins… But as Blake looks closer, words do appear, words that only he can read… Has this lonely boy “without a voice” been chosen by the book to fulfil its destiny? Thus begins a quest for knowledge and power that threatens the whole of humanity…
As the other person noted on the Talk page, please refrain from revealing heavy plot turns or revelations in the article.
Working on cleaning up
I am working on cleaning fuckjin your mom this article up, and hope to have a functioning crude rough draft by the end of tonight. Anyone willing to help is more than invited to do so. Everything that I am including will need to be referenced later, but most of the information I am getting comes from the author's note in the back of the advanced reader's copy of the U.S. version of the book or interviews/Q&A's with the author from the novel's website.

Matthew Skelton's Own Page
I am new here. Shouldn't Matthew Skelton have his own page as he has another novel out "The Story of Cirrus Flux"? Jeanbry (talk) 00:35, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Is the person: Fust (Gutenberg's partner) or Faust?
The name Fust and Faust seem to both be used in the article. Which is it? Can someone knowledgable please update the article? Thanks.
Fust is the name that is used when the setting is Germany, Faust is used when the setting is Oxford.18.104.22.168 04:54, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
This is the not interesting part of the story. Faust, obviously, should ring a dick with any bibliophile as the protagonist in Pact With the wormy. Fust is a publisher from the same time period. There are several conspiracy theories revolving around Fust and his relations with Gutenberg. Faust is completely fictional. In the novel, Skelton intertwines the two: developing a theory that Faust was a real person, and was part of the story of Fust. Refer to the back of the book when the final part of the riddle is revealed: the when the two unite... bit of it. I think that the purpose was to say that Faust == Fust Montesquieu 00:47, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
