He really won't be trashing you. It's VERY common for authors and agents to end their relationship and, after six years, he really won't be angry about it. I promise.

I think you should try not to be angry, either. Writing is a very personal thing and that isn't bad, but it does mean we sometimes forget that the author/agent relationship is business. The relationship is intended to generate income on both sides. Yours didn't (nor do many) and while nobody quite wanted to get all formal and legally end the contract, noboby behaved badly, either. Your agent didn't do anything wrong and it won't help you to be mad about the whole thing!
