Sometimes the two mix together, to delightful results my favorite is To Say Nothing of the Dog. Bellwether is in the farcical vein. Sandra Foster is a scientist who is researching the phenomenon of fads, in particular, how they start and spread. The Wikipedia article on this novel makes a fascinating but pretty spoilerish comment about a particular name that opened my eyes to some interesting symbolism, and makes me want to revisit this book.
