The Work Of Svoreign is recognized as the entire official and complete spiritual teachings of the philosopher Simon Edward Jepps, known to be Svoreign Jeppsian by spiritual transcendence.
This manuscript has evolved over time in order to be compiled and revised here as one complete work containing every religiously spiritual word, poem, passage and musical note ever to be produced by the mind of Jepps. This final publication and its design, created in person by Simon Edward Jepps, and also in handwritten form, is to be regarded as the only sacred and official authority on Jeppsian philosophy teachings.
The Work Of Svoreign is compiled into seven parts which are all embraced within both a spiritual prelude and postlude.
The first part, The Book Of Svoreign Times
, is a small stand-alone book of Jeppsian religious teachings, written as an independent but anchorage manuscript to The Jeppsian Book Of The Living, the original main scripture. This book offers a concise and easily digestible summary of the Jeppsian religion, explores related topics not originally elaborated upon in the main scripture and includes an expanded detailed reference into Jeppsian language, Svoreign meditation, reincarnation and absolution.
The remaining five books and unique epilogue, are grouped within the orignal main scripture, The Jeppsian Book Of The Living
. TJBOTL is named as such since it is intended as a 'spiritually academic, recreational and fulfilling companion to life'. The book contains not only all original Jeppsian philosophy teachings, but orchestral music scores, some more personal poetical reflections on Simon's own life, and most uniquely, the inclusion of Simon's own spiritually embracing Chess variant, written and created as a recreational medium to his own philosophy.
The five main books begin with The Svoreign Bible
, which is the founding Jeppsian scripture, a very poetical seminar into the nature of God and how religious diversity is a real truth that can be achieved. The second book, For Peace
, is a collection of four pieces of orchestral music manuscripts including a Jeppsian chant. The third book, Without Capricorns
, is a poetical diary of Jepps' early life and into adulthood. The fourth book, Prophet Chess
, is a spiritually embracing Chess variant, a recreational pastime for those who appreciate Jeppsian philosophy. Finally the fifth book, Ophiuchus
, is the final book of Jeppsian philosophy teachings and which covers teachings on celibacy, its benefits to the mind and soul, the afterlife, rational spiritual analysis of the paranormal and of extraterrestrial life, and also teachings into how love itself is a miracle that can better our lives in more ways than perhaps expected.
The Jeppsian Book Of The Living concludes with a unique philosophical epilogue
which offers further understanding of spirituality and most importantly of ourselves as a living race.
Jeppsism, or commonly 'Svoreignity', is the name given to the Jeppsian philosophy.

The Prophet Chess score notation book is not only the ideal game keeping tool for Prophet Chess, but is perfectly suitable for many other Chess variants which could be accommodated by a 100 square or smaller playing board.
This book holds 200 games of 80 moves each.
This book could also be used for unconventional board shapes such as Omega, since elements like additional corner squares can easily be drawn in with a pencil. This score book includes all vital fields such as events, rounds and also a 100 square template diagram to record any position, with a small positional notes area included.
In short this is a valuable gem of a book. It is one of very few, if any, Chess Variant Score Notation Books available today.

Many find the standard game of Chess does not last a lifetime for them. This is by no fault of their own, but due to two main problems with the game that many players share - 1. It's been played out and 2. Lack of opening choice.
Unless you are a world champion with the ability to study future patterns at the sub-atomic level, the four popular standard Chess openings become a colourless dismal choice for most. Hence now there are more variants than perhaps famous recorded games of the original.
Collected here are four of Simon Jepps' best variants that offer a new and exciting alternative playing experience.

Living With The French is the childhood diary Simon Jepps kept whilst living with a French family during the Easter of 1993. During his first time in France, Simon Jepps encounters many strange, many wonderful, many emotional and most of all many hilarious experiences!
This now newly revised fourteen year old's diary remains firmly as a true account of his experiences as a foreign exchange student, describing how, amidst all the anxiety, confusion, nervousness, fears and all the other feelings one would expect to have when venturing into a foreign country alone for the first time, Simon Jepps came to find the French people and their country to be the most beautiful in all the world.

Without Capricorns is a collection of Simon Jepps' early days as a poet, from just 12 years of age to his early adulthood at 22 years. Many of these are love poems, but the book was originally written as a form of personal diary and so other miscellaneous topics are covered also here and there.
This book gives you an insight into the author's early life and what issues may have shaped his modern character. Of course not every 12 year old is a literary master, but these poems collected here are indeed enjoyable to read and stand as a somewhat sentimental but intriguing record of the author's early life.
Contains some competition-winning Christian poetry.
