Pathfinder Bestiary overview

I've put together some information from the Pathfinder Bestiary announcement thread over at about the upcoming Pathfinder Bestiary. Have fun.
The upcoming Pathfinder RPG is a much improved version of the D&D/d20 rules. The rules are currently available as beta playtest at paizo.
Now paizo announced a monster book called Pathfinder Bestiary that will feature the same improvements of your favorite game for your critters.

Release date: July 2009 (a month before the PF RPG)
Format: Hardcover, cover by fan-favorite Wayne Reynolds
* Minimum 250 monsters approximatly one per page
* Contains mostly Monsters from SRD plus some from Tome of Horrors, Pathfinder (a few monsters from Adventure Paths or modules) & other sources
* Compatible with the 3.5 & the new Pathfinder RPG
* No Monsters as PC infos (maybe handled in a dedicated book)
* Alphabetical layout plus index or chart that breaks out monsters by CR and by type
* Much flavor text/ecology/society type information
Licence: Probably all content will be open content
Misc: Pathfinder Bestiary II seems to be inevitable

Get it!

PATHFINDER RPG BETA RELEASE - The core book. A nice free download. It's also available as a softcover book (pre-order at Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Beta Playtest (Pathfinder))
