If you're worried about redundant information, the only thing I found are stats for major NPC's in the game. Said stats in this book are repeated in the main 5th Edition Stormbringer book.
Included in this book is a large amount of background information about the Melnibonean people, the current state of the Island/Empire (such that it is) of Melnibone, ideas on how to roleplay one, a good number of random encounters and three adventures that I feel were well written.
I don't know how compatable this book would be with earlier editions and/or with the current one published by Mongoose (Chaosium had the license until sometime after the publication of 5th edition) but if nothing else the details about the Melnibonean people and the Empire would be of use I'm sure.
The writers have done a fine job of expanding seamlessly on the brief paragraphs describing Melnibone of Michael Moorcock's Elric books. This books provide an entertaining read for fans of the Elric series even if you don't actually rolegame since the book is light on game rules and heavy on descriptions. The only (minor) issues are the lack of detailed maps of the Dreaming City of Imrryr and some of the illustrations are not particularly inspired.
