There's a reason some call it Hollyweird. When it comes to peculiar, creepy, odd, bizarre and haunted stories, Hollywood is full of them. Now the publishing house behind the "Weird" book series has finally released a Tinsel Town version.

Tonight "Weird Hollywood" will get its official launch at Boardners, which apparently has its own haunted history, at a free party from 8 to 10 p.m. tonight.

"It's going to be legendary," exclaimed David Markland of CreepyLA.com. "Angelyne, Dennis Woodruff, Christopher Dennis, and all sorts of local icons under one roof (all featured in the book), along with some of LA's greatest city nerds: Lynn Garrett, founder of the wildly popular Hidden LA; Scott Michaels from Dearly Departed Tours and FindAGrave.com; Karie Bible with FilmRadar.com; and many more."

L.A. ghost story expert Richard Carradine will also be there to tell talk about Boardners' haunted history.
