Paizo Announces two new Pocket Edition books, now available for pre-order.

Pathfinder: Pocket Edition is getting two ew densely-packed but light in weight books, as Paizo continues their trend of updatin, collating, and re-sizing their classic books. The Pocket Editions of the Core Rules and the Bestiary last year made a big splash (despite their size), bringing much needed up-to-date rules to players, both new and old. Now Paizo has just announced two new pocket editions: the Advanced Player’s Guide and the GameMastery Guide.
