trying to rediscover a story
The story was a about a guy that whatever he dreams becomes true, but in a way as if it always was, he goes to a therapist who uses his powers for personal gain.
I read this short story about 13 years ago and really liked it, and would very much appreciate any help finding it...
additional details: I read it in a book containing a collection of short sf stories, among them was "flowers for algernon" and something about a train to hell...
thanks in advance

Ursula Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven.
Flowers for Algernon was re-published in Asimov's Hugo Winners, Vol. 1 along with Robert Bloch's Hellbound Train, but I'm certain that The Lathe of Heaven was not in that book.

Thank you very much! that's the one...
It's odd that you say it wasn't in that book, I could have sworn that's where I read it...
Now I just need to find where to get it from

Might be another anthology? Try looking at www.isfdb.org
