    he is forever known/ he will be forever known

    Which are correct:

    1-These books, when published, will be what he is forever known.

    2-These books, when published, will be what he will forever known.

    3-These books, when published, will complete the saga for which he is forever known.

    4-These books, when published, will complete the saga for which he will be forever known.

    I prefer '2' and '4' personally. In '3' and '4' part of the saga has been already published and he is already famous, but I still feel we need the future tense with 'forever'.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: he is forever known/ he will be forever known

    My variants:

    1) These books, when published, are what he will be known for forever.
    2) These books, when published, will complete the saga for which he will be known forever.

    Re: he is forever known/ he will be forever known

    I agree with the above answers. "Forever known" and "known forever" mean the same here.
