As a writer myself, I can see AR writing SA as a stand-alone, where a monkey would be a fitting part of a finale since it would never actually make an appearance. Then he shifted gears, once the book had already been published, to turn SA into Book 1 of a series, and he had to work around that blasted monkey for the rest of his life. Very frustrating --though he turns the horrid thing into a useful plot device in ML. (Gibber's actions with the cigar were not DXM, as it wasn't unforeshadowed, out of the blue. It's plausible and, in retrospect, you can see it coming.)
I always hated that monkey.
