I don't know about three-column output; I'm sure there's a package that 
will do that somewhere.

If you use dvips, then you can easily get any aspect ratio you want. 
For example, the two lines

\textheight 4in
\special{pagesize=8.5in, 6in}

will give you four inches of vertical text on a 8.5in x 6in page, that 
TeXShop will gladly turn into a pdf of those dimensions. I do something 
similar to this for my class notes. (And I don't think I've done 
anything else to make this happen...)
