"Dedication" is a short story written by Stephen King. It was first published in the 1989 anthology Dark Visions, and later included in King's own 1993 collection Nightmares and Dreamscapes.


A black house maid works in a hotel and an eccentric alcoholic, and prejudiced, writer who is a frequent guest there, and recounts the story of the lengths to which she was willing to go to ensure the success of her own son.


The audiobook version of this story, in the Nightmares and Dreamscapes collection, is read by Lindsay Crouse.
