Sad to hear of this. He was a good guy, and did an interview for me:

Very sad. My condolences to his family and friends.

He was a very good writer. His Swamp Thing with Wrightson was legendary. I enjoyed his brief FF run with Perez.

RIP

My condolences to his friends & family. He must have been well-liked and respected in the industry. I don't think I've ever read a bad opinion about him. I think he also did some of those Marvel paperback books they used to years ago.

I do recall reading that he lost some of the original pages of Wolverine's debut in a fire at his home. Those were probably worth a small fortune. He also had the cover for Giant-Sized X-Men #1

News of fire was posted by his friend, noted writer Harlan Ellison: http://www.comicmix.com/2009/04/07/len-wein-house-fire/

Didn't Shooter's site cast it as him and Wolfman vs. Roy Thomas?

Too young. Thank you, Len. Your work was among the first that lured me into comics and your dedication to the medium improved it for the ages.

Actually you can't complain IF you're buying it because your money tells them to go ahead and make more LIKE it.
