Why does this read so much like Pynchon? Did he ever cite Kesey as an influence?

Both written by the same group at Langley.

It doesn't read much like Pynchon. They have a few things in common. They share some ideological roots (i.e. infantile civilization-wrecking '60s counterculture). Kesey often weaves popular song lyrics into the narrative in In SAGN, if I recall correctly. That might recall Pynchon, but Pynchon's "popular song" lyrics are generally written by Pynchon.

Tell me more about this. I got the feeling there might be multiple authors while reading GR.
