Australian publishing houses will not follow the US phenomenon that sees the stories of mass slayings turned within weeks into books.
In the US, publishers have previously rushed books on to the streets following horrific crimes.
But Australian publishers say they will wait until the deluge of information about the Tasmanian massacre has stopped.
Pan Macmillian, Random House and Allen & Unwin told Thirteen there were no immediate plans to publish a book about Martin Bryant.
"It's such a shocking thing and it certainly won't be part of any editorial meeting here," Pan Macmillian publishing director James Fraser said.
"We won't be doing a quickie. And we probably won't be doing a longie either."
