Try this syntax:

postscript("output.eps", horizontal = FALSE, onefile = FALSE, 
           paper = "special")

Take note of the instructions in the Details section of ?postscript and
also re-read the description of 'onefile' ('**' are my add):

"logical: if true (the default) allow multiple figures in one file. **If
false**, generate a file name containing the page number and use an EPSF
header and no DocumentMedia comment."
