Scott Randall has previously published two short story collections - Last Chance to Renew (2006) and Charactor Actor (2008) - and has recently received grants from the City of Ottawa and the Ontario Arts Council to complete a third, entitled Parents of Children; "The Vasectomy Doctor's Online Presence" is part of that collection.
